These were wonderful. I did only use ground beef. I agree with others and would double the gravy - so I used one envelope of brown gravy mix and one envelope of onion gravy mix. I left the sour cream at 1/2 cup, but would probably double next time. Quick and easy and flavorful is fitting in the name.
This recipe was a HUGE hit with my family. Even my youngest daughter who is going through a picky phase loved it and asked for seconds! After reading some of the other reviews, I did double the sauce ingredients which worked out perfectly for us.
AWESOME ! I will make these again. I would use 3pkgs. gravy with more sour cream for more sauce next time. I also added freeze dried chives...yumm!!
Lots of flavor. I added sautéd Crimini Mushrooms to the sauce. I used 1 & 1/2 packets of gravy mix and three meats: ground pork, beef and turkey.
My mom has been really picky in her Senior years and she said that this was great and that we should keep this in regular dinner rotation!
Was excellent, I did use an extra packet of gravy and next time will probably do 3, we really loved the sauce. The meatballs were great, the kids loved it!
