Nana, I looked that the other reviewers comments and upped the quantity of onion podwer by 1/2 teaspoon, added a 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and a teaspoon of fresh oregano... I didn't brown them before putting them into the oven dish and they held together.. just :) We have developed zestier tastbuds since joining zaar, so still found these a little bland, but next time I make these I will use real cloves of garlic in place of the powder, because I think that the difference is noticeable. My biggest problem was that "some' of the rice poking out of the meatballs were not quite soft enough and a little chewy, did I have too little sauce in too big a dish to cover them sufficiently maybe? Definiately a kid-pleaser meal and one I will work on with regards to the coverage of the meatballs. All in all, not a bad recipe at all for the weekday mealtime rush. Please see my rating system: 3 stars with definiate potential for 4 in the future:) Thanks !
I have used this recipe with different cream soups before with excellent results. Of course you have to brown the meatballs first in order for them to hold together properly. This is a kid pleaser recipe.
I thought these were VERY easy to make, but tasted too bland. I would definitely try them again using different spices in the meat and maybe a zestier tomato soup.
