    i changed this up alot. started with finely chopped mushrooms and garlic. like others i added more dijon mustard and a splash of soy sauce. pretty good.

    They were pretty unremarkable even though I added extra spices and mushrooms. I also thought there wouldn’t be enough sauce based on other reviewers comments. I made a cup extra but it turned out to be too much. Not bad and definitely edible and comforting but I was disappointed in the blandness of the sauce. Also maybe I let the cornstarch and milk mixture sit too long, as it got clumpy and it was hard to mix into the meat.

    I don't eat meat, but i made it last year for a Christmas party. I thought well it seemed like people liked it. Then this year multiple people were actually asking me to make it, I was shocked, and i didnt realize it was that good. I made it again and there were no left overs.

    I ended up altering the sauce quite a bit but it was a really great base! I added lemon juice, sour cream, and a little more Dijon and Worcestershire to taste. The meatball portion came out great, first time making meatballs and the recipe made it really easy. I made beef broth mashed potatoes, and sautéed some green beans with garlic and butter to go with it, husband and 1.5 year old ate every bite

    I thought these were really good but I added more Worcestershire sauce as well as more lemon, salt, pepper and a bit of sour cream to the sauce. Also used half heavy cream and half half and half. Turned out really good. Will make again.

    Quite tasty, double the sauce, increased the Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Still needed a little kick, threw in some sour cream. Also added Montreal Steak spice to the meatball mixture. Very rich and filling! Served with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.😋

    Tasty. It came out exactly as expected, and it is not too difficult to make. We had it with rice instead of pasta/pureé and used normal breadcrumbs. Very tasty! Yet, very very heavy...

    A little time consuming to make, but really good. We thought the sauce was missing something, but the meatballs were excellent. We’ll make it again.

    Great flavor! Followed the recipe for the first try. Will adjust going forward since the kids thought a little heavy. But they did clean their plates. I should have taken some of the drippings out after browning the meat balls.

    This was a great recipe! My girlfriend and I made this for her family for dinner tonight with homemade rolls. We added extra Dijon for more flavor. Amazing. Will make again.

    Awesome! We substituted ground turkey to make it a little leaner. The balls didn’t stick as well but the sauce was excellent and made up for it.
