Tasty Wild Rice Meatballs

April 17, 2014
I don't share many recipes on my blog, but this one is worth sharing.  Here in Minnesota, we love our wild rice in soups and hotdishes!  Hotdish is Minnesotan for casserole.  These meatballs are a favorite of mine for potlucks and company, and always get rave reviews.

 I always bake my meatballs for 30 - 40 minutes at 350 degrees but you can brown them in a pan too.  Spray the cake pan with cooking spray.

 Last night I served my meatballs with egg noodles and green beans but they are equally as good with mashed potatoes.  Maybe even better!

Pure comfort food!

The Recipe:  (I found this recipe years ago in local Elks Club recipe book, and have made a few changes.)

2 lbs. extra lean ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 can of Canoe wild rice, drained
2 tsp. Lawry's Seasoned Salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2/3 c. cracker crumbs
2/3 c. milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 tsp. pepper
Scant 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning

Mix together and form into balls.  Brown in heavy fry pan in oil or (bake for 30-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  This is easier, and the meatballs brown and stay together perfectly)  Place in casserole dish and top with 1 can of cream of mushroom soup mixed with one can of water and 1/2 envelope of Lipton onion soup.  Cover and simmer in 300 degree oven for 1 1/4 hours.  Serve over rice, potatoes or egg noodles!
