Add all the meatball ingredients (exclùding the olive oil) to a large bowl and mix well, ùse yoùr hands. Shape into 1 inch meatballs. Yoù shoùld get aboùt 40 meatballs.

Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over mediùm to high heat. Add meatballs and cook. If yoù're ùsing a large skillet all meatballs shoùld fit in one batch otherwise, yoù might have to fry them in a coùple batches. Cook the meatballs on all sides, add more oil if needed. Remove meatballs from skillet and set aside.

To the same skillet add bùtter and melt. Add onion and cook ùntil onion is soft and translùcent. In a bowl add the cornstarch and beef broth and whisk. Add broth and remaining gravy ingredients to skillet, and cook for aboùt 3 to 5 minùtes, saùce shoùld thicken. If the saùce is too thick add a bit more beef broth.

Drain potatoes and in a mediùm bowl, add the potatoes, milk, bùtter, cream cheese and salt and pepper. Ùsing a potato masher mash the potatoes ùntil desired consistency. Yoù may also ùse a hand mixer if yoù wish. Add additional milk as necessary.

Serve meatballs over mashed potatoes.


To prevent yoùr meatballs from crùmbling and falling apart, do not overcrowd yoùr meatballs while cooking them. Leave aboùt 1/2 inch of space in between. It's best to do it in a coùple batches. It can also be an issùe with the binding, so either not enoùgh egg or too mùch breadcrùmbs, if yoùr eggs are too small, add another egg, that shoùld help bind the meatballs better.

They can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 - 4 days or ùp to 3 months in the freezer.

Gravy will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days and in the freezer for ùp 3 months. pùll the gravy from the freezer the day before yoù'd like to ùse it to allow it to thaw fùlly before reheating on the stove.

Mashed potatoes will last for 3 - 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge and ùp to 10 months frozen. Allow to thaw in the fridge the night before and reheat in the microwave.

Please keep in mind that nùtritional information is a roùgh estimate and can vary greatly based on prodùcts ùsed.
