Beefy Mushroom Meatballs

 Beefy Mushroom Meatballs
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.
