Upon reading the reviews of others, I decided to add 2 eggs to the mix in hopes that this would help hold the meatballs together, which it did! I also added a little bit of cardamom and all spice to the mix. This recipe is SO delicious! I definitely love the sauce as well. My husband and I ate the whole pan between the two of us. Poured over some egg noodles, it's almost like eating stroganoff. I absolutely would make this recipe again. It is definitely comfort food for the soul.

This was so incredibly delicious! I did make a few changes that did the trick. Instead of using burger-style crumbles, I used "Gimme Lean Sausage." (100% vegetarian. It's a soy protein. I found it at Trader Joes) To that I added the nutmeg, onion, and pepper, and crumbed up toast. I did cut down the milk to 1/2 a cup. For the sauce I did have a bit of trouble but to solve that I added cold cubed butter and a bit more flour whisking that all together. Served everything over buttered noodles. It was just awesome! I will for sure make this over and over again!

i used store-bought vegetarian meatballs, so i'm only rating the sauce, which was good, but a little on the thick side and i wish i'd made a bigger recipe--there wasn't enough extra sauce for the noodles.
