Turkey Potato Meatballs
This hearty "meat-and-potatoes" dish is one of my husband's favorite meals. We like them better than traditional ground beef meatballs. Topped with a mushroom soup-based sauce, they're very savory and satisfying.—Kathy Rusert, Mena, Arkansas

This dish has potential but was incredibly bland. The meatballs could use more spices, same with the rice and cream of mushroom soup combination. I will make this again but only to find a way to make it taste better.
