Mama's Mashed Potatoes and Meatballs Please!

My kids have 
a new favorite dish!
Mashed Potatoes
The trick to making this is dancing 
while mashing the potatoes!
It really does help I tell you!
Just watch the video in the earlier post
and you will see what I mean!

Mama's Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
2 lbs hamburger meat
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp yellow mustard
1 can of tomato soup
1 29 oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
4 Tbs brown sugar

1 Tbs honey
salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine hamburger, eggs, bread crumbs, garlic salt and onion powder.  Mix together with hands.  In a soup pot combine tomato sauce, soup, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire,
and honey.  Bring to a low boil.  Make  medium sized meatballs from the hamburger mixture.  Drop meatballs one by one into the simmering sauce.  Once all the meatballs are in the pot, cover and simmer on low for about 30 minutes.  Stir occasionally and vent lid about halfway through the cooking time.  While the meatballs cook whip up a batch of mashed potatoes the old fashioned way! Add 1 Tbs of cornstarch to about 3 Tbs water in a small bowl.  Mix together until smooth.  Add this mixture to the simmering meatballs  during the last 5 minutes of the cooking time. This will make the gravy good and thick!  When the meatballs are done serve it up on top of the mashed potatoes!  Make sure to dump a ton of gravy with the meatballs!  Enjoy!
