Meatballs Sausage Dinner Recipe

One day I was having trouble deciding what to make for dinner. So I combined whatever was in the refrigerator and freezer! To my surprise, everyone loved it! —Elizabeth Martz, Pleasant Gap, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 3 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 3 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, halved and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) beef broth
  • Lemon-pepper seasoning to taste

"I didn't have ground beef, so instead I used beef stew meat cut into bite size pieces. This meal was fantastic! It was easy preparation, baked itself, and all we had to do was dish it out and eat it! It was a HUGE hit. In fact, my husband went back for thirds! Needless to say there wasn't much in the way of leftovers!"

"I don't think the meatballs are worth adding because of how dry they got. I leave those off now and we love it."

"This was simple, but good. My only complaint is that the meatballs were done long before the veggies. I left it in the oven for an hour and a half and the carrots were still pretty crunchy. Next time I will skip the oven and let it simmer in a pot on the stove top. I also did not include the lemon pepper - instead I used a beef seasoning and it turned out alright."

"Very easy and delicious! I bake it 10 minutes longer and the vegetables turn out nice and soft. I've made this several times."

"My picky eaters didn't go for this recipe. But I put the leftovers (3 days later) in a pie crust and made a potpie, baked at 425 for 30 minutes and it was delicious!!!"

"My family really enjoyed this dinner! (I used kielbasa) Next time I would use 3/4 pound ground beef so there's more meatballs - otherwise it was great! Very enjoyable! (and a great re-heat!)"
