Meatballs - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 5

I was pleasantly surprised at how good these meatballs really were.  I know adding onion soup mix to things can really bump up the flavor, but in this case I wasn't sure how the oats would overtake the whole recipe.  I had a bad experience with an oat-y meatloaf in the past.  These meatballs, though, I would make again and I would definitely recommend trying them.  Even though you can see the oats, and they oddly look like no-bake cookies, they don't taste weird at all!

This recipe does not suggest how to serve the meatballs, but I made them a day ahead of time and warmed them in a brown gravy the next day.  The gravy I used was from a packet.  I do like scratch gravy but I didn't do it this time.  I would suggest two packets if you want to serve it this way.  One was not quite enough.  Then I served it over rice with a side of roasted vegetables.  It was a very delicious meal!

As a side note, I'd like to do a post soon on making your own onion soup mix.  I don't have a recipe I use right now, but I'll be on the hunt and do a review sometime soon.
