I got this recipe here, from Epicurean.com (one of my favorite sites). I had to give credit, since it's not my original recipe...but we sure love it! The recipe makes 2 9x13 pans, so there's LOTS of food. It usually lasts us two dinners plus a couple of lunches. Cook once, eat four times...I like that kind of recipe!
We have tried several swedish meatball recipes, and we like this one best because it doesn't skimp on the gravy!
8 slices bread, torn
2 pounds ground beef
1/3 c. finely chopped onion (don't do more or the balls will fall apart)
4 tsp. baking power
1 to 2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 cans (10-3/4 oz)condensed cream of chicken soup
2 cans (10-3/4 oz)condensed cream of mushroon soup
