Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is my Grandmother's recipe which she gave me later on in her life when she simplified some things. Her original recipe did not use the soup, back in the day she would make a sauce using 1/2 stick butter, melt and blend in 1/2 c. flour, stir in some of the juice from the meatballs, add 1/4 c. milk and nutmeg. That was the traditional way to make these.
