  • pounds lean ground beef
  • ½ cup plain panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup finely diced sweet yellow onion
  • 1 large egg, room temperature and beaten
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, for frying the meatballs

Mushroom Gravy

  • cups water
  • 1.74 ounces brown gravy mix
  • 4 ounces mushroom pieces and stems, drained
  • 1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet seasoning sauce, optional



  • Add the ground beef to a large mixing bowl.
  • Add bread crumbs, diced onion, egg, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, onion powder, kosher salt, and cracked black pepper. Mix with either a large spoon or use your hands to mix the ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • Measure out 1½ tablespoon scoops of the meat mixture. Form into round balls.
  • Add the extra virgin olive oil to a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. If you use a 10-inch skillet, you will need to cook the meatballs in batches.
  • Once the skillet is heated, add the meatballs to the skillet. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side, and turn to ensure even browning. Once the meatballs are completely cooked, remove them from the heat and prepare the gravy according to the package directions.
  • Once the gravy has been made, stir in the drained mushrooms. Serve the meatballs and mushroom gravy with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.


  • If you choose to mix the meat with your bare hands, I highly recommend using disposable gloves. That way, you reduce the risk of cross-contamination, and it’s a lot less messy.
  • I do highly recommend having a dedicated scoop for meatballs. There is always a risk of cross-contamination. Be sure to clearly mark the scoop for anyone to recognize.
  • If the mushroom pieces are too large, you can cut them in half into smaller pieces.
