Meatball Soup


Meatball Soup

30 Min

These meatballs won't be sitting atop any plate of spaghetti. Our Meatball Soup just requires a spoon and a hearty appetite to enjoy every last drop.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (1.1-ounce) envelope beefy onion soup mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine beef, rice, egg, and pepper; shape mixture into 1-inch meatballs. Place them on a rimmed baking sheet or waxpaper.
  2. In a saucepan, combine water, soup mix and thyme; bring to a boil, then carefully drop meatballs into boiling soup. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 25 minutes.


We sometimes like to use ground turkey or chicken in place of the ground beef for a lighter change. You can also add cut-up fresh or frozen veggies if you like (whatever ones are left over from last night's supper will work just great.)

My family loves this soup. We've been making it for 20-years! We use ground turkey......and add a bag of frozen veggies at the end. Considering how fast it's made, it has "Cooked all day" taste!

I use this recipe with a tomato based soup and serve it over mashed potatoes or rice, we've always called it, "meatballs and gravy."
