    Very good recipe. Along with other reviewers, I doubled the rice and baked meatballs in the oven. After 30mins at 350, I ladled sauce on top of the meatballs and cooked another 15mins. I also used half ground beef and half italian sausage-which did add to the baking time. I did make a few with just ground beef and the whole family agreed, the ones with sausage were far and away the best. I served these over egg noodles but do not recommend the tomato soup sauce as a gravy. I think good, homemade spaghetti sauce would be better, after they were baked with the original sauce. Thank you for sharing!  -  09 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I've been making these for a few years now -- this recipe is one of my regulars. The whole family likes them! I add one tsp of Worcestershire and also a dollop of jarred garlic (mixing them into the meat). Also, I typically use brown instant rice and after browning the meatballs in a small amount of olive oil (no shortening), I pop 'em into my crockpot! About 2 hours or so on low and they're perfect. Thanks for the recipe!  -  04 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Adding the soup to the meatballs gives them a little more flavor and keeps them moist. Because I had to brown mine in batches I ended up just adding the garlic to the sauce. I needed a little extra zip in my sauce too, so I added some Worchestshire sauce.  -  27 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
