Meatball Soup

This "soup" is very hearty, more like a stew. It was so good and easy to make, this will become a go-to meal for me when I'm too busy to cook dinner. Just place this in the crock pot in the morning and dinner will be ready when you get home.


Meatballs - either 12 oz pkg frozen cooked meatballs or make your own like I did (recipe below)
6 - 7 red potatoes, quartered
16 oz pkg baby carrots
1 large onion, chopped
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed tomato soup
1 can (10 1/2 oz) beef gravy
1 cup water
1 envelope onion soup mix
2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules

Place potatoes, carrots, onion and meatballs in crock pot/slow cooker. In bowl, mix all remaining ingredients. Pour over meatball mixture. Cover and cook on LOW for 9 - 10 hours.

6 servings.
