I've been making this soup since the 1980's and the family just love it. I don't brown the meatballs...I just add them to the simmering soup and let them cook that way. It adds more flavor to the soup and it's one less dirty pan to deal with. Be sure to get Cheez Whiz. No other processed cheese will taste right.

I've made this quite a few times and loved it! I was hesitant at first with the cheese, but it's yummy!
