This is a wonderful recipe for parties and get togethers of all kinds and they always disappear so fast! I made these several years ago for my daughter's wedding reception and people thought that they were absolutely delicious and wanted the recipe. I haven't made them in a while, but I've decided to make them for an upcoming church dinner, thanks to some suggestions from the great cooks here at JAP. You can use them as an appetizer or a meal served over noodles, rice or mashed potatoes. I hope that y'all enjoy these yummy meat balls.

Ingredients

1 pkg
great value brand homestyle meatballs or your favorite brand of frozen meatballs (2 pound size)
1 pkg
dry onion soup mix
1 can(s)
cream of mushroom soup
1 can(s)
creamy onion soup
1 can(s)
water
SPECIAL NOTE: YOU CAN ALSO MAKE YOUR OWN MEATBALLS, IF YOU PREFER.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If using Great Value Brand Frozen Homestyle Meatballs, remove from freezer and place in slow cooker. In medium sized bowl, whisk together soup mix, soups, and water. Pour over meatballs and stir.
2
Cook on low heat for about 4 to 6 hours or on high for about 2 to 3 hours, gently stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
3
This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled if you need to make a lot for a party or other get together. The frozen meatballs saves time and is very easy. I prefer the Great Value (Walmart) brand over the others that I've tried. Enjoy!

Ooops! Sorry, I accidentally deleted my comment where I answered your question, Alisa, lol! What I said was yes, you can use French onion if you can't find the cream of onion and it will work just fine. I know that the cream of onion can sometimes be hard to find, so I have used the French onion instead. I thought that I'd better repost my answer just in case someone had the same question. :)

Oh OK, I was wondering if I could use cream of celery and just add some extra onion in :-) I do have a can of french onion soup as well though :-)

Thanks for the comment Diane, I'm so happy you enjoyed the meatballs! I've done this sauce stroganoff style with sliced beef and it works great. I do it the same way, only I add some sour cream to it just before I'm ready to serve. :)

Tried the meatballs and they were great! So tonight I'm using the sauce, stroganoff style, with sliced steak!
