"Ok, so there are a ton of meatball recipes on this site. But nothing is quite like this one. Try it if you like savory, big meatballs to serve with whipped potatoes or egg noodles."

1 (10.75 ounce) can

I baked these in a 425 degree oven rather than frying them... and I left out the sauce... but my family LOVED them! I made them about a month ago, and am going to make them again tonight! Thank you so much!!! :)
The meatballs seemed a little on the nutmeggy side to me (and I even added a bit less than called for). But I think once you add sour cream to the soup (as someone helpfully suggested already), the flavors even out. Perhaps the title subconsciously conjured up my kindergarten imaginings of big sloppy italian meatballs all covered with cheese, rather than a more swedish-meatball-type of flavor. Thanks anyway :)
AWESOME!!!!!Just like my Mom makes.we loved it! The only changes I made were that I did not have coriader, but I used a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, and I had Italian bread crumbs instead of plain. Otherwise I followed it exactly. Thank you soooo much.
The meatballs were very flavorful. I used dijon mustard instead of coriander and added about 1/3 cup of sour cream to the mushroom soup. It was delish! Husband liked it too!
WE HAVE A WINNER!!!! I’ve only made meatballs a couple times in the past 15 years of marriage, mostly because *I* don’t like them even though it is one of hubby’s favorite meals. I wanted to make a special meal for him and I tried this recipe. The meatballs turned out great; I even ate 2 of them. The only real difference was I made ours with ground venison (we have a lot of it in the freezer this time of year).
I'm a new wife and made these for my husband over noodles. He asked me where I bought the meatballs. When I said I made them, He gave me a high five across the table. I made a smaller version of the recipe for the 2 of us, but they were still wonderful. I browned them in a frying pan, but then put them in a small casserole dish, added the soup, and them left them in the oven for a few hours on low. Still wonderful!
These are very satisfying and easy to prepare. Just watch them carefully when you're cooking them in the covered pot as they will burn easily. Once I turned my heat down and got them to brown instead of burn I had a winner! They are a little crispy on the outside and cooked through on the inside. Savory and delicious. I skipped the white sauce/cream soup and served them with spagetti noodles and marinera sauce.
I found these meatballs to be quite tasty-in a different sort of way. I'm glad I only put 1/2 tsp of the nutmeg, though, as someone suggested. I didn't have the mushroom soup, so I just made a white sauce and cooked it for a few minutes with the meatballs, which flavored the sauce just right. My husband put catchup on them, so I made him eat some just as they were so that he could help me rate the recipe. He gave a thumbs-up, so that probably means 5-stars!
