ZESTY MEATBALLS WITH DIP

This is an old recipe from the area where I grew up in Southern Indiana. These meatballs were served as appetizers.

2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk
2 tbsp minced onion
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 lb ground beef
2/3 cup mashed potato flakes

In a medium mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, and mashed potato flakes; allow to stand for a minute. Add the onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and crumbled ground beef; mix together well. Shape into 1-inch meatballs. Add a tablespoon of shortening or oil to a heavy frying pan and heat over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs to the hot pan and cook over medium heat until brown. May be kept in oven, covered loosely with foil, on lowest heat until ready to serve.

Dip for Meatballs:

1 cup sour cream
2 tsp milk
1 tbsp brown gravy mix

Combine the sour cream and milk in a small saucepan. Whisk in the brown gravy mix. Heat thoroughly over a medium-low heat. Serve with the meatballs.
