Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place meatloaf mix in a large mixing bowl; crumble bread over meat and knead with hands to combine. Add milk and egg to meat mixture. Knead onion, nutmeg, cloves, salt, and pepper into meat mixture until well-combined. Form mixture into six equal-sized balls.

  • Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook and stir meatballs in hot butter until browned on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir water, tomatoes, beef broth, and onion soup mix into Dutch oven; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until meatballs are tender and cooked through, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 1/2 pound ground pork and 1/2 pound ground beef for the 1 pound meatloaf mix, if desired.

Recipe was delicious except for the amount of nutmeg. One whole tablespoon of nutmeg is way too much. Next time I would use 1 teaspoon at most. Read More

I stumbled onto this recipe and it awoke fond memories of the meals I enjoyed as a child. All my mothers Dutch recipes were stored in her head, very few were ever written down. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Read More

Worse recipe I've used! Just wasted $14.00 in meat. Had 2 lbs of meat. WAY too much nutmeg and cloves. Please adjust recipe so other do not waste their money. Read More
