Yummy! I made this exactly as posted and it was so good. After they simmer the onions are just about done and not raw, and soooo delicious. I had a lot of rice left over from last night and didn't want to throw it away, so we used that with a couple of veggies. I will make these again and do the mashed potato thing. Now that I have tasted them once, I really would like mashed potato. It made 27 big meatballs and I have enough to freeze and make this a OAMC meal. I like that as I get lazier the older I get. There is just my husband and I now so I have a lot to freeze into meals. The meatballs were so tasty and good. I ate one while they were simmering because the house smelled so good. Thanks for the recipe, Rose. It is a keeper.
