Saucy Meatballs

Before the weather gets too warm, I thought I'd share another "comfort" food recipe with you. Ever since I bought a certain Betty Crocker Cookbook at a yard sale years ago, I have been making these Saucy Meatballs. They are super easy to prepare and can be served with rice or egg noodles.
Here's what you need for the meatballs: ground beef, onion, bread crumbs, milk, Worcestershire Sauce, salt, and an egg.
Combine all ingredients and form into 1-inch balls.
Cook on stovetop in batches until browned. Drain off any grease. Return all meatballs to pan.
Here's what you need for the sauce: Cream of Chicken soup, sour cream, nutmeg and milk.
Stir in the sauce ingredients, except sour cream, and heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream and heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over rice or egg noodles.
Saucy Meatballs
(from Betty Crocker)
1 lb. ground beef (93/7)
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 egg

Mix ingredients and shape into 1 inch balls. Cook over medium heat, turning occasionally until brown, about 20 minutes. Or cook in an ungreased 13x9 pan in 400 degree oven until brown for 20-25 minutes.

1 can (10.75 oz.) cream of chicken soup
1/3 cup milk
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sour cream

After you have cooked the meatballs in skillet, drain. Stir in soup, milk and nutmeg. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream and heat through.

These meatballs are very versatile, allowing you to pair just about any sauce with them. This "saucy" sauce is great alternative to traditional tomato based and tangy sauces. What's your favorite meatball sauce?
