User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Easy Meatballs in Mushroom Sauce
A quick-to-fix family pleaser. Make and freeze cooked meatballs ahead of time for an extra-easy meal.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion, or about half of a small onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, divided
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed golden mushroom soup


In a large bowl combine beef, oats, onion, garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, eggs, and 1/2 cup milk (mixture will be soft). Using about 2 tablespoons of mixture per meatball, shape 18 to 20 meatballs. In large skillet melt butter and oil and brown several meatballs at a time, turning carefully with spatula. As meatballs brown, remove to a 13x9x2-inch baking dish.

To the drippings in skillet add the remaining 1 cup milk and the soup; cook and stir just until mixture begins to boil. Pour over meatballs. Cover and bake at 350° for about 60 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked. Serve over mashed potatoes or noodles. This recipe for meatballs serves 4.

""Fantastic Meatballs!"", says my husband, Member Farrah333

This recipe is awesome. I used 1/4 cup sour cream mixed with water instead of milk, rice instead of oats, and I used mushroom gravy instead of soup. That way, I could serve the meatballs over rice and pour extra mushroom gravy on top. I am very picky about meatballs, and so is my husband, and this amazing recipe (with my alterations) surely passed the test!! I also cooked the onions a little before I added them to the mixture. That definitely helped for flavor. Wow... I agree with my husband.. These meatballs are fantastic!
