Salisbury Meatballs

Once I let the idea of Salisbury steak get into my head, it wasn’t going to go away. I was jonesin’ bad for that mix of beef and pork and my favorite, the brown gravy. But I wasn’t going to make ‘steak’, I was going to make meatballs. And boy, oh boy, did I ever make Salisbury meatballs.

Salisbury Meatballs

‘Tender, flavor-packed meatballs smothered in a fantastic sauce’. That’s pretty much all you have to tell me. No more convincing is required. If I read that on a menu, I’d order it. With plenty of mashed potatoes and extra gravy, too. These Salisbury meatballs were absolutely fantastic,
