I thought these were quite good. From Betty Crocker Boys and Girls Cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in skillet. Add green pepper and onion and cook until tender.
  2. Stir in soups and water. Heat to boiling. Then turn down heat and simmer sauce, stirring occasionally.
  3. While this sauce cooks, make meatballs. Beat egg slightly in bowl. Add ground beef, bread, evaporated milk and salt and mix well.
  4. Shape meat into balls about the size of ping-pong balls.
  5. Drop balls into simmering sauce and cook slowly about 1 hour, or until sauce has thickened.

Unfortunately, we were not so impressed by these. The meatballs definitely need more flavor at the least. Although I absolutely loved the method of poaching the meatballs in a sauce while cooking, this particular sauce did not do it for us. It wasn't inedible, but was not enjoyable, for us at least.

I learned this recipe when I was a teen upteen years ago when my mother gave me Betty Crockers' cookbook for children... As the years went on, I made it using italian seasonings in the sauce and meatballs! My now adult sons rave about it! I too serve it with whipped potatoes and also with creamed corn.

I have made this so many times! My husband absolutely thinks this is the best thing he's ever eaten. I serve it over mashed potatoes.
