Meatballs are comfort food so everyone in the family should enjoy eating this, even picky eaters. This is an easy recipe that can be prepared quickly. When making this, I would use reduced sodium beef stock. Also, I would serve this dish over egg noodles. Add a side dish of green beans, and dinner is ready.

I haven't tried the recipe yet, but it looks like 3/4 pound of beef, not 1/4 pound. Since the mushrooms are cooked down before you form the meatballs, that proportion should be about right. Of course, you could choose to have a full pound on hand and add a little more if needed.

Seems like a lot of mushrooms for only 1/4 pound of meat? Is this right+
