Find out how to make meatballs and gravy in under 30 minutes with only six ingredients!
Have I told you how much I love rice and gravy? I have? Like, 50 times? Well, let me just tell you one more time that I LOVE rice and gravy. It is one of the most satisfying foods I can think of, even more than macaroni and cheese!
Even better than rice and gravy is meatballs and gravy over that rice. You might have tried my baked meatballs with rice and gravy, which is delicious but takes a long time to cook. The secret to making this version so quick and easy is using ground sausage for the meatballs instead of seasoning your own meat.
You don’t need bread crumbs or seasonings or milk. Just grab a pound of sausage and a cookie scoop, and you are on your way to a fabulous dinner. These easy meatballs could also be used for spaghetti and meatballs instead, or go to town with a toothpick and these meatballs on their own as a party food!
Assuming you don’t eat all your meatballs before they make it to your dinner table, the gravy is really easy to put together. The color will vary depending on how many brown bits are left in the pan after cooking your sausage. Whether it’s light or dark, it will taste amazing either way. Serve these for dinner, and watch your family smile!
