Nice comfort food. Make the meatball small for the little ones and watch them disappear!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, half of the thyme and salt. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls. In a soup pot, brown meatballs; drain and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, saute onion, carrots and mushrooms in oil until onion is tender. Stir in the potatoes, broth, tomatoes, meatballs and remaining thyme. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

delicious flavor and a good soup for me, my husband and 2.5 year old little girl. we used ground thyme (and only a little at that) in the meatballs and added a few sprinkles of oregano to the broth. a definite keeper. thanks for sharing!

WOW, I thought this was going to be good but it delivered a lot more flavor than I had expected. What a terrific, easy to make soup. I discovered that I didn't have any carrots so I added some chopped red pepper. There is a full depth of flavor here and I wouldn't add a single thing to this to this wonderful soup. Everything was well balanced and this is going into my "All Time Fav's" cookbook. Made for PAC, Fall 08.
