Directions

To make meatballs, mix together all the meatball ingredients except the butter. Shape into small balls. In large fry pan, sauté meatballs in butter over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until well browned. Remove from fry pan; set aside. To make mushroom sauce, sauté mushrooms in butter until softened; set aside. In a bowl, dissolve cornstarch in a little of the milk. Add cornstarch mixture to the fry pan with remaining milk and cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened. Add the remaining sauce ingredients, meatballs and mushrooms. Return to a boil, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve meatballs on mashed potatoes, rice or pasta (such as macaroni, penne, fusilli or rotini).
