I remember as a kid getting those Salisbury Steak freezer meals and thinking they were oh so tasty. Now as an adult I’ve tried them and although they are edible I just cant see myself wasting the calories on them. I practice portion control and everything, but life is too short to avoid eating the food that I love and I’m a meat and potatoes type of girl. This recipe is super easy and what makes it even better is homemade gravy; you can use the pre-made stuff but it just doesn’t give the same flavor.
I don’t know any kid that doesn’t go gaga over spaghetti and meatballs. My step-son does this little jump up and down dance when he finds out that’s what I’m making for supper. Some meatballs, although very tasty, end up overpowering the sauce. I like my meatballs to compliment my sauce and these ones do just that. They are made up of very simple ingredients and really don’t take very long to cook at all, which is wonderful for those nights when you just don’t have very much time or energy to make supper.
Many many years ago when my Great Grandma passed away my Aunt took it upon herself to go through her recipes and compile a cookbook to give to everyone in the family. There are many different recipes that I have tried or that I remembered from my childhood in that book but this one is my second favorite. My favorite is one my family lovingly called dodgers which is just native american fry bread, that was my addiction growing up.The first time I made this though I fell in love because of how simple and delicious it is. I of course have changed some things over the years like substituting real milk for reconstituted milk powder, but I also don’t know anyone anymore who really keeps this in their house. This is a big hit with kids and husbands too, my family often begs for it.
As you can probably tell I am always trying to find easy things to make for supper, well easy ways to do things all around 🙂 And I admit I used to always buy the canned stuff when it came to making sloppy joes; who needs that junk with this EASY recipe that is also inexpensive since it only has 5 ingredients.
