Author Notes: Using ground meat to make savory meatballs for this one pot soup means less cooking time. Carrots, onion, celery and potato round out this hearty soup, but you can easily substitute any veggies you have on hand. —Becky G
To make the meatballs:
- 1.5 pounds Ground Meat (beef, chicken, turkey)
- 1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1 tablespoon Better Than Boulion (flavor of your choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and mix together until well incorporated. Bread crumbs and egg have been omitted in this meatball mix as they would make the meatballs fall apart in the soup.
- Form meatballs into desired size. Heat Oil or butter in large soup pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Brown meatballs on all sides. They do not need to be cooked through as they will simmer in the soup later and finish cooking.
- Transfer browned meatballs to a plate or bowl. Cover to keep warm. Depending on the fat content of your meat, you may want to drain off some of the grease.
