“I was having a craving for meatballs over rice and when I went through my usual recipesI was missing one ingredient or another, either pineapple chunks, or green peppers,cranberry sauce, sour cream, jelly, this ingredient or that ingredient...gee I felt like poor old mother hubbarb that day!!!! So I went on the internet in search of a "simpler" recipe...this is what I found and it was very very tasty & easy,and needless to say, great for when you are short on ingredients and due for your next grocery order!!(Actually , even for this recipe,I was out of onions too, which is why I used onion soup mix!!) My hubby even really liked it quite a bit, sometimes less is more! It ended up a keeper that I will make even when I do have a fully stocked kitchen! HA!”
