My folks were in town for the weekend and Steve and I were thrilled! My parents=home projects (remember handy G-Pa), craft projects (remember crafty G-Ma), time with the Mur-Man, and great food! All the goals were met and we had a FANTASTIC time!
And so it is HUNK OF MEAT MONDAY and I knew the perfect meal to make. One of my mom’s best! Better yet—it is simple and FIVE INGREDIENTS OR LESS!
|Lots of reading took place!|
Porcupine Meatballs are a staple in my house—keep in mind I grew up in a meat/potato household and loved it.
Before we get started this is a crock-pot meal. Ethne and I love crock-pot meals and I recently discovered crock pot liners.
|Let's put these to the TEST!|
I don’t know about you, but nothing is WORSE than soaking a crock pot for days—trying to get it clean. And, so I wanted to put the meatballs to the crock pot liner test.
|The liners in place...now let's put the meatballs to the TEST!|
2 pounds of hamburger
1 cup of rice
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
Combine the hamburger, rice, and onion (chopped up).
|Mix up and make balls!|
Form into meatballs.
|Hands work best!|
|A visual for your meatball size!|
|Mixed up and ready to cook.|
I served this meal with mashed pototaes, asparagas, toasted French bread, and sliced strawberries and kiwi. DE-LICIOUS!
|Mur-Man loved it too!|
And guess—what the crock pot liners worked great. No mess left behind.
|Check it out--the mess goes straight to the trash.|
Even Crafty G-Ma hadn’t used them, but is now sold on their time saving advantage.
WOMS—COOK THESE MEATBALLS AND USE CROCK POT LINERS! Both Ethne and I swear by them!
