1 ½ lbs. Ground beef

2 Tbsp. French onion soup mix

3 oz. Gruyere cheese shredded and divided

½ Medium onion sliced thinly

1 Tbsp. Olive oil

C. Chicken or beef broth

¼ C. Heavy whipping cream

Salt and pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat on the stove.

Add the sliced onions to the skillet, and cook until they begin to brown and soften. Remove the onions from the skillet and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, pork rind crumbs, egg, french onion soup mix, 2 oz. of the shredded gruyere cheese as well as salt and pepper to taste. Mix together well with your hands until well combined.

Form the meat mixture into 30 evenly sized meatballs.

Place the meatballs in the heated skillet on the stove, and cook, turning to brown evenly until completely cooked through.

Remove the meatballs from the skillet when finished.

Add the chicken or beef broth to the skillet, and scrape the bottom to loosen any bits.

Whisk the heavy whipping cream into the skillet until well blended.

Place the onions and meatballs back into the skillet, and toss to coat before serving.
