Marinara sauce is not my family's favorite, they are too used to meat.  However if I throw in some meatballs then its the best meal ever in their opinion.  So I am happy that everyone is getting their vegies and they are happy their carnivore wants are being met.


1 lb ground hamburger
1 lb regular sausage, I prefer Jimmy Dean (you can use Italian if you like some spice)
1 1/2 c bread crumbs
1 onion, finely chopped
1 egg
salt and pepper
1 tsp nutmeg
4 oz tomato sauce (half of a small can)
2 c water with 2 tsp beef bouillon

1. Mix all but the beef bouillon mixture into tablespoon sized balls.
2. Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add half the balls at a time and brown well on each side (around 5-7 minutes a side).  Place browned meatball on a plate and brown the other half of the meatballs.  When the second half is browned, add the first batch back to the pan.
3. Pour the beef bouillon mixture over all the meatballs.  Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid for one hour.
4. Remove the lid and return the heat medium high and cook until only a little liquid is left, around 15 minutes.
