  • 1 lb approximate frozen meatballs
  • 10.75 oz can cream of mushroom soup (I use low-sodium soups)
  • 8 oz whole button mushrooms
  • 10.75 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 3 slices white bread
  • water
  • 2 tbsp instant minced onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tbsp au jus gravy mix
  • 2 eggs
  • Olive oil for browning
  • 1 tsp water


  • Place all ingredients except sour cream in a 4-6 quart slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on high approximately 3 hours. I don't use low heat for this recipe. If you use low heat, I cannot guarantee the results but I wouldn't cook it longer than 5 hours.
  • At the end of the cook time, stir in the sour cream.
  • Serve over pasta or egg noodles.
  • Place bread in a small bowl and add about 1 cup of water. Let this sit for 5 minutes, then squeeze as much water out of the bread as you can, then place the bread in a larger bowl.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix very well.
  • Shape into meatballs about 1.5-2-inches in diameter. Brown on all sides in 1-2 tbs of olive oil.
  • Drain off excess fat. Add 1 tsp water, cover and simmer on low heat for 10-15 minutes.
  • Cool meatballs to room temperature, then place them on a baking sheet in a single layer, place in freezer about 1 hour until completely frozen. Store in a zipper bag in the freezer for future use. This recipe can be doubled or tripled.
