I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Creamy Dijon Meatballs

Love these saucy meatballs over mashed potatoes, but they'd be equally good with egg noodles!

Meat Ball Ingredients:
1 lb ground beef
2-3 tbsps bread crumbs
2 tbsps shredded onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp dry parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1 egg
1 tbsp milk

Dijon Gravy:
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups beef broth
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup milk
2 tsps dijon mustard

1 1/2 cups chopped spinach

Mix the meatball ingredients together and form into 2" balls. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

While the meat balls cook make the sauce. Melt butter in a medium skillet, add flour and cook 1 minutes. Whisk in the broth and worcestershire sauce and simmer until thickened. Stir in the milk and dijon, then add the meatballs to the sauce. Turn to coat and simmer for 5 - 10 minutes.

In the last couple of minutes add the spinach and cook just until wilted.
Makes 9 plum-sized meatballs
