- 1 tablespoon minced onion
- 2 cups beef or chicken broth (or homemade chicken broth)

- In a large bowl, mix together the raw hamburger, oats, and minced onion. Add in additional spices if desired for special flavors.
- Form the meat mixture into balls and place in an 8×8 baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes or until the meatballs are done on the inside.
- While the meatballs are cooking, cook your rice or pasta. You will also want to cook your gravy during this time.
- For the gravy, add the broth to a saucepan and stir in a bit of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Add about a teaspoon of starch to a small bowl and mix with water to make a thick liquid. Add to the broth and stir while adding. Let boil gently, stirring frequently until desired consistency is reached.
