Rice Meatballs

"I first made these meatballs when our children were small, and they just loved them," notes Mary Kelso of Hannibal, Missouri. "I occasionally use cream of mushroom soup instead of tomato soup, and that variation is delicious, too."

    By the way, I use just normal rice...not instant and it turns out fine! I really don't like instant rice.
