“I see a light in the kitchen. Let us not deprive Molly any longer of the chance to deplore how thin you are.” – Albus Dumbledore, HBP

With Molly Weasley’s meatballs now on your dinner table, you’ll feel like you’ve just Apparated straight into the Weasley’s cozy kitchen. Between the magic of the spices and the homey touch of that onion sauce, it’s a dinner worth coming home to—even if you’ve had a long day battling dark forces at the Ministry of Magic.

16 oz ground mutton, or ground lamb if you prefer
½ cup green onion chopped
1 cup bread crumbs
3 tablespoons fresh parsley + more for topping
1 egg
¼ t ground cloves
4 T butter
1 cup butter
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup onion, finely diced
3 T flour
salt & pepper to taste
egg noodles for serving

In a small bowl, combine the mutton with the bread crumbs, green onions, ground cloves, egg, parsley, salt, and pepper until the breadcrumbs are fully incorporated. Form the meat into small balls, using about three tablespoons of meat per ball. Melt two tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat while you prepare the meatballs. Cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions. Add the meatballs to the skillet and turn them frequently to brown on all sides, roughly one minute per side. Remove the meatballs from the skillet and set them aside. Without cleaning the skillet, add the remaining butter. Add the finely diced onions to the pan and stir until they have browned. Pour in the chicken broth and stir well. To thicken the sauce, sprinkle the flour over the top and whisk it in until the sauce reaches your desired consistency. Return the meatballs to the skillet and let them simmer to reheat. Serve the meatballs and sauce over a bed of egg noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes. Eat like a Weasley and enjoy!
