Preheat oven to 400°. Place the sauce mix into a small bowl; set aside. Place seasoning mix into a large bowl; add ground beef, pork sausage, white onion, water, and garlic. Mix well.
Shape into 32 (1½-inch each) meatballs. Place in a greased large rimmed baking pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until meatballs reach 165°.
Meanwhile, heat butter and thyme in a large skillet over medium heat. Once butter is melted, add mushrooms. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until mushrooms begin to brown. Remove from skillet; set aside. Wipe skillet clean with paper towels.
Whisk whole milk and reserved sauce mix in same skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat; simmer 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl. Stir in coarse ground pepper and chopped fresh thyme, if desired.
Alternately thread 2 mushroom halves and 1 meatball onto 4-inch cocktail picks. Serve with sauce. Garnish kabobs with additional chopped thyme and pea microgreen tendrils, if desired.
