Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Remove the crusts from the white bread and tear into small bread crumbs. In a medium size mixing bowl, combine beef, soup mix, white bread crumbs and half-and-half cream. Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and arrange in 9x13 inch baking dishes (as many baking dishes as it takes or bake the meatballs in shifts).
  3. Bake 10 to 15 minutes; or until browned.
  4. In a slow cooker with the temperature set to high, mix together ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until the mixture comes to a boil, then reduce temperature to low until you are ready to serve the meatballs.
  5. Place the meatballs in the sauce and serve.

I made these for a Boy Scout Dish-to-Pass Dinner and EVERYONE loved them! I used Onion Mushroop soup mix, as that was all I had! Instead of bread, I used crumbled saltine crackers. I did not have half & half, therefore, used milk and one egg. In the sauce: I added 1/2 tsp. Chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, dash hot pepper sauce and 1 Tablespoon Vinegar--because I didnt' want a sauce with a strong Ketchup flavor. It was delicious!

Very good! I made them for a party and got rave reviews. To make it easier I bought the meatballs already made. Sauce was great!

Wow...I finally found a sauce to complement my meatballs. I do agree...do not by frozen meatballs as homemade is much better. The upgrades I incorporated were 2 tbls of sour cream as it made the meat much moister, 1 (28 oz) bottle of Heintz Tobasco Ketcup (for a little more zip) and a few splashes of Franks Red Hot Origianl sauce. I then added a few more splashes of red tobasco sauce and a little bit of water in the slow cooker so as to take away some of the "ketchupy" taste while maintaining a moist sauce. These were a great hit!

I used frozen meatballs and then mixed the ingredients together to make the sauce (including the onion soup). I just put it all together on the stove on low until heated through. They were very good. My husband had about 15 friends over and the guys even cheered a beer to me and the meatballs.

Yummy!....says the whole family and surprise guests that showed up for dinner. Will make again and again, and even for a party this Saturday!

I made this for a party, everyone loved them. I combined the meatballs with cocktail wieners. Big Hit!

I was looking for a simple yet good meatball recipe and this was "the one"! Everyone loved it. The only suggestion I would make was to double the sauce just to make sure they are extra coated. They were all gone fast!
