Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
â€¢ ½ package of Hillshire Farms seasoned crumb stuffing
â€¢ 3 Tbsp. butter
â€¢ 1 medium onion, finely minced
â€¢ ¼ cup celery minced fine
â€¢ 1 cup milk warmed
â€¢ 2 eggs lightly beaten
â€¢ 2½ pounds ground beef
1. Sauté onion and celery in butter until softened. Add to the stuffing, eggs, milk and beef. Form into small balls using a cookie scoop. Prebake on a cookie sheet in a 350° oven for 15 minutes. Place in crock on low for 2 to 3 hours.
2. You can add â€œgravyâ€ to this and serve on rice, egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
3. Gravy recipe: 1 can cream of mushroom soup, ½ cup sour cream and 1 can milk, whisk together and pour over the cooked meatballs and cook on low until heated through.
NOTE: The Fareway meat counters often have freshly ground beef that is done in small batches right at the counter. This blend is best for burgers and meatballs if you donâ€™t have your own ground beef, but get there early because it usually sells out each day!
