2 (1 ounce) packages
dry onion soup mix
1 (28 ounce) bottle

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!
Easy, but bland.
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!
