Really, really good and really, really easy. I made the meatballs from scratch. I used about 1.5 pounds of ground beef, 3/4 of a diced onion, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, @ 3 teaspoons of diced garlic, 1 teaspoon italian seasoning, salt, pepper, a little onion powder and a little seasoning salt. I baked them for 25 mins on a broiler pan so the fat would drip off. Once I added the meatballs to the sauce (I originally made a half batch of sauce since I only made 1.5 lbs of meat) I decided I wanted more sauce so added another can of cream of celery and then added 2 beef bullion cubes and about half a packet of dry onion soup mix since I didn't have any more canned onion soup. I also added one soup can full of water. I cooked the whole pot on high for about 3.5 hours on high and it was really delicious. The only thing we felt it needed was more salt. We'll most definitely have this again.

Hubby was not that impressed with it. Taste was okay......basically like meatballs in soup.Very easy and quick to prepare, but I would not make again.

This was really good and REALLY easy! I made a couple modifications. I cut the recipe in half (makes a LOT!), used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of celery, and I didn't make it in my crockpot. I boiled the noodles, put the meatballs in the microwave, and threw all the other stuff in a pot on the stove to heat through. When it was all done I just mixed everything together. The crockpot would have worked great, but I didn't want to wait...I'm terrible about last minute meals, what can I say?! It ended up being SUPER quick and tasted great! My husband said "needs more mushrooms, but it's really good!" It's a really tasty stroganoff. YUMMM!! I think it's a keeper!

I made quite a few changes, going with what I had on hand. First made my own meatballs, 1.25 pds ground beef, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 egg, 1 tsp italian seasoning, salt, and about1/2 cup minced onion. Baked these in foil lined pan in oven about 30 minutes. Removed and drained. For sauce used 1 can cream of mushroom, 1/2 envelope dry onion soup mix, 1/2 cup sour cream and 1 cup milk. Heated through added meatballs and served over buttered egg noodles. Good flavor, similar to stroganoff

This is a wonderfull dish. I halfed this recipe and it came out wonderful. There was enough liquid. I would recommend this for any potluck no noodles needed.

I made this using gravy mix,green peppers,grn onions and pre cooked meatballs(costcos kirkland brand). Add the sourcream right before you are going to eat. Slap it over some egg noodles. My husband and kids LOVE this recipe.

Love these! I made them as described and then it hit me that these would be perfect appetizers st get-to-tethers. Have made them 3 times in the past 2 weeks and everyone loves them. I ahve made at least 8 copies of this recipe to give to people. I do recommend cutting the recipe down as it makes a lot!

Oh my so good. I made this and brought the leftovers to work. My coworker tried it and made it that weekend for her parents, they all loved it. So easy, my finicky 4 year old even loved them! Great as leftovers too!
