Meatballs with Homemade Mushroom Sauce

Mushrooms are a favourite of mine in any form, as soon as I see that there is a dish that has mushrooms, I know that it’s the one for me. So when I decided to pair meatballs with a homemade mushroom sauce, I knew it was a sure win! The mushroom sauce is so simple and fast to make it will help make supper easy to whip up.

And no, before you ask, this isn’t what my family gave three thumbs down to the other night. THAT was beef stroganoff with meatballs (which if you will notice, is a recipe missing from this website) and for some reason, I can’t make one that Mike and the kids like.

Is it the sour cream tang perhaps? This last recipe I tried had some Ranch dressing ( which I thought was delicious) but it was an even more emphatic three thumbs down than before.

Picky buggers.

While the other nights’ recipe might have tanked, these meatballs in homemade mushroom sauce did not. Now let’s be clear; this isn’t going to taste like the out-of-the-soup can sauce that people usually put on meatballs. I just wanted to put a homemade mushroom sauce on meatballs this time around.

Ok, to be honest, mushroom dishes aren’t always a win in this household either.

Mike picks them out, because while he doesn’t mind the flavour that it imparts into the homemade sauce, he doesn’t like too much flavour, you know. (what does that EVEN MEAN??!)

My Rose won’t eat them either.

Mr K and I, however, are mushroom fiends and eat them like there’s no tomorrow.

I promise that these meatballs with homemade mushroom sauce are truly easy to make. One of the things that I will tell you as a hint is that the stronger flavoured the mushrooms, the better it’s going to taste.

Use Porcini, Portobello or any other strong flavoured mushroom of your choice instead of white button, if you can. However, that little bit of truffle oil will help if you can only find white button mushrooms! You can also adjust the amount of truffle oil that you use in this, some people love it and some hate it. I would add more to my sauce ( on my plate) because like I said, I am a mushroom flavour freak. It’s my jam. My mushroom jam.

Happy cooking babes!
