1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed tomato soup
1 1/2 pounds
uncooked instant rice
ground black pepper
I made mine in the oven with a few minor changes to this recipe. I substituted one small fresh chopped onion, added some garlic powder and an egg and used 2 cans of soup instead of one. I put the meatballs in a casserole dish and popped them in the oven at 350 degrees for one hour and they came out perfect.
Not the best. See my review for Hedgehogs to fix this up.
My family gave these a 5+++++.
These are easy to make I baked mine instead of doing them on the stove top. Bake them for 1 hr. But I did everything as the recipe called for. Served them with mashed potatoes like other veiwers sugjested and salad. Will be making them again. =) =)
I took some advice from other reviewers and added 1/2 c. breadcrumbs and an egg to help hold the meatballs together. To reduce the amount of grease in the sauce, use lean beef. Finally, there was definitely not enough sauce; I added a jar of spaghetti sauce during the last five minutes of simmering to add quantity and flavor. Overall, good stuff!
These are very fast, easy, and oh so yummy!!! You do need more than 1 can of soup though!
Great recipe! I used Cream of Mushroom soup instead of the tomato, tossed in a bit of oregano and it turned out fabulously. Next time, I'll cut the salt in half though.
I usually use 1 can of tomato soup and 1 can of tomato sauce to thicken it up. Also put thickly sliced green bell peppers and onions in the pot...best when baked covered in the oven
I made these meatballs with more salt and pepper, onion powder, a dash of italian seasonings and with Cambells ready to serve Cream of Tomato Soup without diluting. I also added 2 eggs to help them bind. I loved the flavor but with cooking the meatbals in the soup, the sauce was insanely greasy! Next time I'll oven brown them first them simmer in sauce to cut down on grease. Kids loved it
