A pound of ground beef goes a long way in this recipe. I especially like to take it to potluck suppers.—Mina Dyck, Boissevain, Manitoba


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of asparagus soup, undiluted
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced celery
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained


  1. In a bowl, combine the beef, oats, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, celery salt and parsley. Shape by tablespoonfuls into meatballs. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until browned.
  2. Meanwhile, combine rice, celery, onion, mushrooms, soup, water and remaining salt. Transfer meatballs to a greased 3-qt. casserole; pour soup mixture over. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
