Among my memories of a reunion held on my farm are these savory meatballs a family member made. That's where I got this recipe that I now make for potlucks and get-togethers. It's so handy to transport and keep warm in a slow cooker, and it makes a great appetizer, too.

"I love all kinds of stroganoff and figured this meatball recipe would be a great addition to my collection. The sauce for this recipe had an odd taste I didn't like at all. I won't make this again unless I change to my own creamy standby sauce. I hoped this would be terrific but I was really disappointed."

"I've made this recipe several times. It's kid friendly which is a huge plus. I use fresh mushrooms. I've served with noodles or mashed potatoes. Rice would be good, too."
