Cook potatoes and apples

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Peel, core, then cut apple into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes, apples, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 10-12 min. Drain and return potatoes and apples to the same pot, off heat. Mash 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes and apples until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Roast meatballs

Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Add beef, panko, Dijon, half the Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. Roll mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the top of the oven until golden-brown and cooked through, 10-12 min.**

Caramelize onions

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch slices. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl the pan until melted. Add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 8-10 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast broccoli

Meanwhile, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Add broccoli and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to another parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven until tender and golden-brown, 12-14 min. Carefully remove broccoli from the oven. Sprinkle cheese over top, then continue to roast until cheese melts, 1-2 min.

Make caramelized onion gravy

Meanwhile, sprinkle Gravy Spice Blend over caramelized onions. Cook, stirring often, until onions are coated, 30 sec. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl), broth concentrate and remaining Worcestershire sauce until smooth. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until gravy comes to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until gravy thickens slightly, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Finish and serve

Add meatballs to the pan with gravy. Gently stir to coat. Divide mash and broccoli between plates. Arrange meatballs on mash. Spoon caramelized onion gravy over meatballs.
