Easy Meatballs With Brown Gravy For Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System

We had some ground beef to cook recently that had to be cooked right then. I also had mashed potatoes making. I thought to do a meatloaf but wasn’t exactly really in a meatloaf mood. Meatballs it was! These meatballs are about as simple as it gets. And as you may remember, gravy is not my strongest suit so I used jarred which saved me time and energy. These meatballs pair perfectly with mashed potatoes. Here’s how I make them.
