Meatloaf Balls with Mushroom Gravy

DSC 0331

A few months ago, a friend from work had a baby shower for her son and daughter in law. It was so exciting getting ready for it and discussing all the details. She decided to have a mashed potato bar. So, we spent a lot of time discussing topping options. I suggested meatloaf meatballs. I had to try it almost immediately.

This is my version of the meatloaf meatballs. I made them a few months ago and froze them in a zip top bag. It ended up being several meals for us of the course of a few months. Each time, I made mushroom gravy and then simmered the meatloaf meatballs in the gravy. I served them over mashed potatoes.

The thing I like the most about this is that it is freezable and already in individual serving sizes. That makes it perfect for a quick dinner or a party. If you want to try a mashed potato bar, I highly recommend it. It was a genius idea.
