    CREAMY MEAT BALLS posted by CharleneG

    1 pound ground beef
    cup chopped onion
    cup soft bread crumbs (I use a good wheat bread run
    through a food processor to make medium-fine crumbs)
    1 cup sour cream (divided use)
    1 tsp. salt and a little pepper
    tsp. ground allspice
    3 Tbsp. Oil (optional)
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    Combine meat, onion, allspice, bread crumbs, cup sour cream, salt and pepper. Mix; shape into meatballs about 2 inches in diameter and brown in oil and drain on paper towels. Combine the remaining cup sour cream and the mushroom soup and add just a pinch of ground allspice and mix well. Pour over the meatballs and cover and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove cover and bake 10 minutes longer.
    MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: These work extremely well!
    Shape meat into meatballs and place in sprayed, microwave safe dish, cover and cook on high for 10 minutes per pound, stopping at 5 minutes to turn meatballs over in juice. Let stand for a few minutes to reabsorb some of the juice. Remove the meatballs from the dish and mix the soup/sour cream sauce thoroughly with the juice. Return meatballs to dish and pour some sauce over top. Cover and microwave about 8-10 minutes, or continue with oven directions. I use the microwave to precook the meatballs and the oven to finish them. Works great.
    OVEN DIRECTIONS: To precook the meatballs in the oven, roll them into the size and shape you want, place on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, then place them in a casserole dish with the sauce and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes covered, then uncover and bake 10 minutes longer.

      Wondering if these meatballs would taste good in
      tomato (spagetti) sauce?

      Or maybe with a side of rice?

        I've never tried these particular meatballs in a tomato based sauce. They probably would be pretty good, but the combo of the allspice in the meatballs and the sour cream and mushroom soup just tastes so great that I never thought about changing them. I have served them with rice many times, but the noodles are my favorite. I almost made them with orzo last night, but I had a package of bow ties that I needed to use up.

          I know the amount will vary, however, how many normal sized
          meatballs can you get from this recipe?

          I'm thinking approx 12

            I generally get 12 meatballs out of a pound of ground beef.

              Made this tonight. Keeper recipe. I would tweek it just a bit with a little beef broth to thin out the cream of mush soup and add a little more flavor.
