German Meatballs with Gingersnap Gravy Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe was one of my mother's favorites, and now my family enjoys it as well. The beauty of this recipe is that the meatballs need not be browned. The gingersnaps are what gives the gravy its rich taste. I have, at times, substituted fresh ground turkey for the beef, and it works just as well.
