shredded Swiss cheese
chopped fresh mushrooms
lean ground beef
2 (1 ounce) envelopes
dry onion soup mix
What a novice idea! These were actually very tasty. Not hard to make the hearts. But... you only need 1/4 of the cheese and mushroom mixture. And that is probably too much. And.... Samantha (Bewitched) couldn't make these in 10 minutes. Plan on closer to 30 minutes.
These were really quite nice, but the onion soup mix made them a little bit too salty. Will see what I can do with modifications.
Very yummy! In order to get the filling inside the meatballs, my meatballs turned out really big. It was easier to shape them into hearts than I thought it was going to be. Our Valentine's Day lunch company liked them too! The meatballs made great leftovers- we put one on a bun, added some ketchup and mustard and had a hamburger! Thanks for the recipe!
I just made this recipe- AMAZING! I uses half ground turkey and half Italian sausage- the flavor was intense and wonderful. A big hit for me and my sweetheart!
We really loved these. I gave them four stars because I made changes: used one pound ground turkey and one pound ground chicken, used mozzarella b/c I didn't have Swiss, mixed everything together at once, and threw in a handful of Penzey's Spices pasta sprinkle. I made 12 round meatballs and then served them over mashed potatoes with a bechamel mushroom sauce. Everyone, including kids, loved them.
These are really cute! I used a pound of turkey and got 4 big hearts. Instead of the onion soup, I used coriander, nutmeg, garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley and onion flakes to season the meat. When had been in the oven for 20 minutes, I poured over a sauce made of a can of cream of chicken soup, 1 1/4 cups light sour cream, 1/2-3/4 cup milk, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1/3 cup white wine, a sprinkle of salt and a sprinkle of parsley. Baked them for 20 more minutes. The sauce was great over the meatballs! Also, what worked best for me when making the meatballs was to just make the 2 sides shaped like rounded triangles, put them together and seal the edges, and then form it into a heart shape. Oh and for some reason I could only fit about a tablespoon and a half of the filling into each one, I'll try to do more next time. A chunk of cheese and some mushroom slices might be easier to handle.
pretty good. we changed the recipe a bit but they turned out fine. I think it would best if we followed the recipe.
My husband and I loved these! I actually cut the recipe in half, and formed the meat mixture into a meatloaf, instead of meatballs. It was incredible, and will definitely be on our menu again in the future!
