Very easy - perfect for young cooks. So delicious, even the kids will love it! This dish goes very well with garlic mashed potatoes and a vegetable side dish. For a shortcut, I use frozen pre-cut peppers and onions.

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute green pepper and onion for 5 minutes, or until tender. Stir in the tomato soup, chicken & rice soup and the water and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine the ground beef, egg and milk. Break the bread into very small pieces and add to the bowl. Mix together well. (Note: The kids love to use their hands to mix this. Be sure they wash them well before AND afterward to avoid any contamination.)
  3. Shape the meat mixture into meatballs and drop them into the soup mixture. Continue to simmer over low heat, uncovered, for 45 to 60 minutes. Stir occasionally, but be very careful not to break the meatballs.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is good, but... I used one can soup, and then one can low sodium broth to cut back a little on the salt.

Really good...two problems though. It seemed to stick to the bottom of the pan, and I wished I had more sauce so that it would have worked better with the rice I put it over. I omitted the onions and green peppers, as we do not like them, and this recipie still turned out great! The boys want me to make it again but turn it into a meatball sub. I think I just might! Excellent recipie.

I THOUGHT THESE WERE JUST OKAY. THE PORCUPINE MEATBALLS ON THIS WEBSITE ARE SOOO MUCH BETTER.
