Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For meatballs, in a large bowl combine bread crumbs, egg, garlic, black pepper and paprika. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape meat mixture into twenty-four 1-inch meatballs. Place meatballs in a foil-lined 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake about 15 minutes or until done in centers (160 degrees F). Set aside.

  • Meanwhile, in a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, cook carrots, celery, sweet peppers and onion in hot oil over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water, broth, and barbecue sauce. Bring to boiling. Add collard greens. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

  • Add cooked meatballs to soup; heat through. To serve, ladle soup into six serving bowls and sprinkle with blue cheese.
