combine the egg, cracker,garlic, salt,hamburger and any spice your mood strikes you. mix and form into little balls. fry in oil or bake in oven. in pot add the soup, vegetables. cook for 30 minutes if using fresh veggies. add the meatballs. before serving add the parsley if using canned veggies put all together and heat. the longer it sits the better. sometimes i add cabbage.
