This is definitely our family staple, my kids love mashed potatoes with meatballs. It is quick and easy to make, and you can have a healthy home cooked meal in 30 minutes.
8 medium potatoes
1 tbsp salt
1/8 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 pound ground meat
1 cup milk
2 slices of white bread
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs or flour
To make the most of you time, first, put a pot with water a stove to boil. Meanwhile, peel the potatoes and cut each potato on quarters, so they can cook faster.
Once the water starting to boil, put salt and peeled potatoes in and let them cook on medium heat till potatoes are tender.
While the potatoes are cooking, place ground meat in a medium bowl. Crack one egg in.
In a separate bowl, mix walk with white bread. Let the bread soak all the milk in.
Place the soaked bread in the meat bowl (don’t pour the milk in)
Shred the onion
Place the shredded onion in the meat bowl. Add salt and pepper.
Mix in all together using a large spoon or your hands
Place the bread crumbs or flour on a plate
Make a medium meatball and place it in the bread crumbs
Bread both sides
Place the meatball on an oiled skillet
Cook covered on medium heat for about 7 minutes then flip the meatballs to the other side
Cook on the other side for another 7-8 minutes till the meatballs are ready.
While the meatballs are cooking, check your potatoes with a fork for tenderness. If the fork can easily get in and out of the potato, it is ready. Drain the potatoes using colander (spagetti drainer).
Reduce the heat to small, add butter and milk in and let the butter melt.
put the potatoes back in the pot. Using a masher, mash the potatoes and mix it with the heated milk and butter.
Whisk the mashed potatoes with a whisker to make it smooth.
Place your mashed potatoes on a plate and a meatball and vegetables and your dinner is ready.

I just made the kids mashed potatoes for dinner and they loved it. My daughter called it “mashed-ted-potatoes.” 🙂 What a great idea to pair it with the meatballs!
