The one meal I know my kids will always eat, is meatballs.  Meatballs with spaghetti, sweet and sour meatballs, stroganoff meatballs, and meatballs and gravy.  And I love that because meatballs are one of my favourites too.  What I also love about them is how easy they are to make.

Meatballs and Gravy Dinner

A rich Homemade Gravy that’s easy to make!

For this recipe I make a simple ground beef meatball, and create a gravy made out of consomme.  I always try to have consomme on hand because I use it in so many recipes, but it is the best when used to make gravy.  You can use beef broth, but I find that the flavour isn’t as rich or deep as consomme.  I use 2 cans for this recipe because we like loads of gravy…everything must be drenched in gravy.  Yes.
