Meatballs, gravy and mashed potatoes

This is a recipe of my mothers, with slight changes, because well, I can’t help myself!

-1 lb of ground beef
-1 lb of ground pork
-1/4 cup of italian seasoned breadcrumbs
– 1 teaspoon of pepper
-2 tablespoons of milk
-1 1/2 teaspoons of galic salt
-2 eggs
-1 family size Heinz “Savory Beef” Gravy (why yes, I was that lazy, and not making my own gravy. But you know what, I love this gravy!!)
-4 or 5 medium-large potatoes, chopped
-1/2 stick of butter
-1/4 cup of heavy cream
-salt and pepper to taste

I pretty much just dump everything in and mix it thoroughly with my hands. Its easiest that way. Then make them to whatever size you desire. Mine are about the size of golf balls.

In a pan over medium to medium high heat, brown the meatballs on all sides. I try not to cook them all the way, and let them finish in the gravy.

Once they’re all browned, I pour the gravy over them and let them gently simmer away.

Cut and boil the potatoes until they’re done (when you poke them with a fork and they’re tender!)
Then I put in the butter, cream, salt and pepper, and mash them. MMMMMMmmm.
