Simple Swedish Meatballs

1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 pkg (6 1/4 oz.) boxed chicken stuffing mix
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 1/4 cups water
1 jar (12 oz.) beef gravy
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix meat, stuffing, eggs, onions and water. Shape into meatballs about 1" in diameter (about 32). Place in 2 foil lined 13 x 9 baking pan. Bake 20 minutes. Mix gravy and sour cream in a large sauce pan. Add meatballs. Mix lightly and cook on low for 5 minutes. Serves 8 (4 meatballs each)

With the holidays coming up, this is a simple and delicious way to make meatballs. You can make the meatballs ahead and freeze by placing them in single layers on a baking dish, place into freezer until frozen and then transfer to a zip top bag.

Changes - use ground turkey or chicken. The boxed stuffing comes in several flavors so you can easily change your flavor by changing your stuffing.
