Meatballs are a good idea: always! Today I share a recipe for a delicious mushroom and sage sauce. I’m sure your guests will love it!
When I became interested in cooking, meatballs were the first thing I started experimenting with. It’s super easy, so soon I mastered some delicious recipes! I once made some meatballs in tomato sauce for a tapas-night with friends: they were gone in no time!
Meatballs in tomato sauce are perfect to go with spaghetti, so I made a double batch… But nope, there was nothing left 😉 I’ll share that recipe with you too sometimes: it includes many fresh herbs and of course fresh tomatoes to maximize flavour!
Also, I made meatballs in smokey barbecue sauce for our housewarming party. They were a big hit!
Actually, I have a lot of meatball recipes! I’ll list them here:
Meatballs in mushroom and sage sauce
Onto the recipe! These delicious meatballs in mushroom and sage sauce were served with Christmas, and my grandma kept making compliments about it! Which is rather special, seeing that she’s usually not that into saying sentimental things 😉
Haha, oh I’ll share one of the comments with you guys. It’s sort of a sneaky-hidden compliment. “My kitchen is old, but I have everything I need. If I were to get a new kitchen I’d keep it just the same. It has everything. Oh, except the recipe for those delicious meatballs then.” I couldn’t believe my ears, too funny!
Are you ready to find out about those delicious meatballs? Recipe down below!
- (Homemade) meatballs, 800g
- Chestnut mushrooms, 250g
- White mushrooms, 250g
- Sage, a handful
- Butter, 80g
- Cooking cream, 100 ml
- Stock, 250 ml
- Flour, 3 spoonfuls
- Salt, pepper
- Start by frying the mushrooms in butter. It's easiest to do this in smaller batches, so all mushrooms are cooked.

- Add the flour, and cook this for around 2 minutes.
- Add the broth, and stir until thickened. This should take around 5 minutes.
- Add the cooking cream and stir through again.
- Once the sauce has thickened enough or is the preferred consistency: add the meatballs.
- Season with salt and pepper, and serve!
- Tastes even better if you use the grease that is left when preparing the meatballs!
