Meatballs in Brown Gravy

Meatballs in brown gravy is one of the most delicious ways to prepare meatballs. The meatballs are very similar to Salisbury steak and get a lot of flavor from ingredients such as parmesan cheese and garlic and herb breadcrumbs. The garlic and herb breadcrumbs really help to add a delicious flavor to these meatballs and I prefer it over using Italian breadcrumbs. The gravy is easy to make and chances are you already have a lot of ingredients on hand to make it already. These meatballs are great served over mashed potatoes or if you are looking for a healthier alternative, mashed cauliflower. We have been eating mashed cauliflower a lot in our house recently and we were skeptical at first but we have come to find out that it is a perfect substitute for mashed potatoes, maybe even better!
