It's Raining Cats and Dogs Meatballs

I've been on the couch sick for a few days.  I've been pretty useless around here!  Luckily, Bub was working the past two nights so I didn't feel too much guilt for not making dinner. Not too much...

I'm taking a short cut and using instant mashed potatoes from Whole Foods but did make something tonight!

1 lb ground beef
1 tablespoon Bragg Liquid Aminos
Garlic powder
Black pepper
Paprika
Oregano
1/2 cup GF baking mix
2 tablespoons margarine
2 cups water

Mix the first 6 ingredients together with a fork.  Put the baking mix in a gallon sized zip top bag.

Shape beef mixture into 8 equal sized meatballs and place into baggie with baking mix.  Shake gently to coat with baking mix.  The baking mix gives a nice crispy seal on the meat.

Melt margarine in a skillet with a lid.  Add the meatballs and allow to brown on at least 2 sides.  Reduce heat to low and add 2 cups of water.  Stir to loosen the yummy browned bits from bottom of pan.  Cover and simmer on low for about 1 hour.

The baking mix will magically make a gravy for you! Finish with a little more black pepper and oregano.

 Long live instant mashed potato flakes!
