Meatballs with Cream Sauce Servings: 6 (adapted from Taste of Home)

Meatballs: 1 egg, lightly beaten ¼ cup milk 2 tablespoons ketchup 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce ¾ cup quick-cooking oats ¼ cup finely chopped onion, fresh or frozen ¼ cup minced fresh parsley 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joes, herbs de Provence (optional) 1 teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper 1 ½ pounds ground beef

Cream Sauce: 3 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon dried thyme Salt and pepper to taste 21 ounces chicken broth 1 cup heavy whipping cream (or milk or half and half if wanting a slightly less rich and thinner sauce) 3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Serve with: Rice or noodles Roasted vegetables such as brussels sprouts, broccoli, or asparagus* *Line a baking pan with foil, drizzle vegetables with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Roast at 400-425° until vegetables are tender. (Time depends on size of vegetables. Average time is 20 minutes.) Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine the egg, milk, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, oats, onion, parsley, optional seasonings, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 ½ inch balls.

2. Place meatballs 1 inch apart on greased baking pan (line with non-stick or greased foil for easy clean-up). Bake, uncovered, for 22-25 until meat is no longer pink.

3. Meanwhile, for sauce, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour, thyme, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add broth and cream; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.

4. Drain meatballs on paper towels; transfer to a serving dish. Serve with sauce; sprinkle with parsley.
