Cook potatoes

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F.Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Add potatoes, 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 to the same pot, off heat. Mash cheddar and 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) into potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Caramelize onions

Meanwhile, heat a medium 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. (TIP: If onions are getting too dark, reduce heat to medium-low.)


Meanwhile, add panko and 2 tbsp milk (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl, then stir to combine.Halve tomatoes.Combine tomatoes and spring mix in another large bowl.

Roast meatballs

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

Make caramelized onion gravy

When meatballs are halfway done, add remaining Worcestershire sauce to the pan with onions. Cook, stirring often, until Worcestershire sauce evaporates.Sprinkle Gravy Spice Blend and remaining broth concentrate into the pan. Cook, stirring often, until onions are coated, 30 sec. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl). Increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring often, until gravy comes to a simmer. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until gravy thickens slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Finish and serve

Add meatballs to the pan with gravy. Gently stir to coat. Drizzle Italian dressing over salad, then toss to combine.Divide mash and salad between plates. Arrange meatballs on mash. Spoon caramelized onion gravy over meatballs.
