Cheryl’s Stroganoff Meatballs

Whenever I take my Stroganoff Meatballs to a potluck, I always get recipe requests. Kids love them! Most people assume that the “secret”  for these tasty meatballs is in the sauce and that they can just use any old meatball for this dish.  Not so!  The “secret” is in the meatballs themselves!


Making the meatballs takes just a few minutes, and these are well worth the effort.

This recipe is easily multiplied for a crowd.  I’ve even quadrupled the ingredients for a party, and the results have been great! However, you will need to cook larger batches for a longer time. Just check a couple of the meatballs closest to the center of the pan for doneness. They’re done when they are no longer pink in the middle.

Stroganoff Meatballs

1 pound ground beef

½ cup oats (uncooked)

1/3 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1 Tablespoon dry minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Scant ¼ teaspoon dill weed
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 can cream of mushroom soup
½ cup sour cream

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT soup and sour cream.  Mix well with hands.  Roll into mixture into balls, bigger than a ping pong ball, but smaller than a golf ball.

Place meatballs in a 9 x 13 pan. Spread soup over meatballs with a spatula. Bake uncovered at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until meatballs are done. Blend in sour cream and serve over rice or noodles.

  • :goodjob: I will admit to being someone, “wowed!” by these meatballs and immediately asking for the recipe! They are wonderful!!!

    Having so much fun with Dani (whose off at Independence Hall right now). I’m going to go through Dani withdrawls when I have to give her back to you.


  • Ha!!! Didn’t realize Dani was logged into Xanga on my computer! That really was me posting!

  • I am goign to add these to my menu for this upcoming week. Do you think these can be done in the crockpot?

  • Mrs. Sheila – Yes, they can definitely be done in a crock pot!  I’ve done it several times…..Cook them on low for 6 – 8 hours (don’t add the sour cream until they’re ready to serve).  The trick with the meatballs in the crock pot is to use a spoon to break them apart a bit about half way through the cooking time.  The raw meatballs sort of meld together as they cook otherwise.  I hope you enjoy them!
