Things You'll Need

- 2 10.75 oz. cans cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- Mixing bowl
- Frying pan
Mix the hamburger, 1/3 cup of rice, onion, garlic clove, salt, pepper and egg together in a mixing bowl.
Stir the soup, the milk, garlic salt and parsley in the frying pan over medium heat.
Form the meat mixture into balls that are slightly larger than golf balls.
Place the meatballs into the soup in the frying pan.
Roll the meatballs to brown on all sides.
Cover the frying pan and cook over low heat for 10 minutes.
Stir the remaining 1/3 cup rice directly into the soup, stirring occasionally.

Tips & Warnings
- You can always add more or less of the spices in the ingredients or get creative and add some other spices.
- Make sure you stir the rice occasionally in Step 7. The rice will burn to the bottom of the pan if you don't.
