How to make Salisbury Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes

Step 1: In a large bowl, place the meatball ingredients except for the olive oil. Mix well until blended, then form into 1-inch meatballs.

Step 2: To a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the meatballs into the skillet and cook both sides. If needed, add more oil. Set the cooked meatballs aside when done.

Step 3: Melt the butter in the same pan. Add the onion to the melted butter and cook until soft and translucent. Then, add 2 tablespoons of flour and grated garlic. Cook for a minute mote.

Step 4: Stir in the beef broth and continue to cook for additional 3 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Step 5: Add the tomato ketchup, bbq sauce, and paprika. To taste, season with salt and black pepper. Stir well. Add more broth/water if the sauce turned up too thick.

Step 6: Return the meatballs to the pan and toss in the sauce. Continue to cook for a minute more.

Mashed Potatoes:

Step 7: In a big bowl, place the mashed boiled potatoes. Add the milk and butter, then season with salt and pepper.

To Serve:

Step 8: On a plate, place some mashed potatoes, top with meatballs, and gravy. If desired, garnish with some parsley. Serve the meatballs and mashed potatoes with a side of steamed veggies like broccoli. Enjoy!
