Mr.E’s Meatball Chowder

A dear older couple that lived near us when we were growing up, used to invite all of us kids over for supper at least once a week, and on cold blustery winter days, their kitchen was the place to be!  You see, Meatball chowder was the only meal that Mrs. E would let Mr. E make without her supervision. lol  – it was his finest dish however, and whenever there was the rumor that Mr. E was to make it we would flock on over to “help” him, aka taste test! 😉   Anyhow, Meatball chowder is just one of those childhood recipes that never gets old and is a sure people please ‘r!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. Meatballs  ( we cut them in half, but you don’t have too)
  • 1 tall can V8 Tomato Juice [round about 1  1/2 cups]
  • 5 cups Water
  • 1 tsp. Season Salt
  • 1 tsp. Marjoram
  • 1 tbs. Beef flavoring or very strong broth
  • 3 cups diced Potatoes
  • 3 cups diced Celery
  • 3 cups diced Carrots
  • 1 large diced Onion
  • 1 can Corn

Directions: Combine all the liquids together in a large cooking pot.  Add the spices/salts and let them dissolve/incorporate.  Next add your veggies and meatballs.  Let cook on high for 1 hour  stirring as needed- so as not to burn the pan. 😉

Tips: Mr. E always diced his veggies on the chunky side, and i think that is what made this recipe so hardy.   Also, to thicken you can add 2 tbs. of tapioca; corn starch or whatever you normally use to thicken your chowders.  ( Serves 8-10)

Happy Cooking and Bon Appétit!
