    These were a favorite of mine when I was growing up. This is taken from my family cookbook. I've made them with ground turkey also - very tastey!

      This was exactly how I remember these tasting when my mother made them! She didn't have an exact recipe and I was really craving them. I made a huge batch and I used ground turkey because my DH doesn't eat beef. These came out perfect and didn't fall apart like they normally do when I make them. The only issue I had was the rice on the inside of the meatballs was a little bit crunchy. I think I should've made smaller meatballs or something.

      We loved these meatballs. I substitued a can of spanish tomatoes for the tomato soup--and it gave it quite a nice flavour. We enjoyed the meatballs for supper, but even more, the next day, cold and sliced on rolls. Yum! I have already made up a triple batch of the meatballs for the freezer for a busy day.

      WOW! I wish I could give this recipe a 10 star rating. Its absolutely the best meatballs I have ever had. I want to mention that it didn't call for browning the meatballs before adding to the sauce but I did (brown them before)and I also let them simmer in the sauce for a hour or so. I highly recommend these too! Thanks so much for sharing one of your favorite recipes.Its now ours too :)
