This was something that my mother use to make & was all ways my favorite, so I had to learn how to make them myself. I add more garlic to the ground beef & have them with mash potatoes. Never had anyone say they didn't like them. Also, make great grinders with the soup!

A great comfort food recipe! I was planning on having leftovers for tomorrow night's dinner but DH has already had more than his share and in case he should wake up during the night, he plans on having more. If that doesn't happen - it's breakfast! I was concerned about the baking powder but the meatballs were so light that I will use it in other recipes. I added the baking powder and seasonings to the milk and bread mixture. The only thing I did different was to double the amount of poultry seasoning. Thanks Poker - it's a keeper!

I loved this recipe! I fried up two batches of meatballs. Each batch had 18 meatballs. The first batch I left out the cream of mushroom soup, after browning, I drained on paper towels, and froze them for future use for whatever recipe. The second batch I waited until about halfway through the frying to add the garlic which I minced. I took the liberty of adding about a half cup of white wine. I used the wine to scrap any brown bits off the bottom of pan and let the liquid reduce by about half. Then I mixed in the soup and water. I sprayed my baking dish with cooking spray then I added 1 cup dry Minute brown rice then poured the mixture over the rice. I made sure to put in a little extra water in for the rice to absorb. It turned out so yummy!! Thanks!

Very easy and tasty. DH said it reminded him of his moms cooking. Next will serve it over egg noodles for a comfort dish. Thanks Poker.
