Reviews for Cheese Meatballs
"Very dry and tasteless. I had to add an egg to keep the meatball together on the cookie sheet."
"This was killer with venison, loved it."
"These were definitely a winner! I had no leftovers.... That is my goal"
"This recipe is very good if you substitute breakfast sausage instead of ground meat. The spicier the sausage, they better they are."
"This recipe has been a favorite in my family for years. The recipe is exactly the same as this one, except we substitute sausage for the ground beef. They are yummy little treats especially around the holidays!"
"We didn't think much of these, not much flavor and we thought very dry."
"Very good but must be served immediately. The cheese gets hard if they sit out too long. All of my kids loved them!"
"I make this recipe all the time with green onions added to it. I also stuff mushrooms with them and bake they are excellent!!"
"Great finger food!"

"SOOOOO easy to make and soooooo delicious! Any suggestions for a dipping sauce for them? They were excellent!!"
"i made packet of spanish rice,put it in baking dish with diced tomatoes mixed in. then i put the meatballs on top and covered them with enchilada sauce and grated cheese. baked at 350 just log enough to heat through. pretty good."
"I really like this one. For the reviewer who printed out 3 pages, just learn to "copy and paste." I "copy" only what I want from the recipe, including bits of the reviews, then "paste" it to a document on my computer. Easy and doesn't use paper and ink at all."
"Meatballs delicious but wasted ink to print it out as had to print all 3 pages. Please make it simpler to print JUST THE RECIPE! Usually can print just 1 page but for this one had to do all 3 pages. Help us to save by making it easier to just copy the recipe."
"The taste is nce but it would be nicerif ty had some kind of a cream sauce or light sauce with them"
"YUM-O, very fast and everyone loved them. Thanks!"
"I used the basic recipe, except for adding more spices and finely chopped onions. My husband and I enjoy lots of spices. McCormick's has a great "Montreal Steak" seasoning that I sprinkled on top of each meatball - WOW! Excellent. Thanks's for sharing your recipe!Tamara ChronisterMontrose, CO"
"I found out about this recipe at my cousin's house this past Christmas time. My cousin made these and the taste was wonderful. My Mom has made them since coming back to Michigan and they where great then also. I'm thinking about making them this Christmas for my husband's family. I don't think they have tasted these before. I will definately make these again and again. They're so easy to make. My Mom used sausage."
"Have made a version of these for years with Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage. Always a hit and so easy to make and have in the freezer for when guests pop in, fast freeze on a cookie sheet, then put into a ziploc type bag. Take them out of the freezer and bake. They are ready in no time."
"Down south, we make this very same thing, with hot bulk pork sausage or turkey sausage, and call them sausage balls. Tennessee Pride also sells them already made.If you use sausage, regardless of whether it is pork or turkey, you don't need to add any seasoning because it's already in the sausage.And, if you freeze the sausage balls first, before baking them off, you don't need to grease the baking sheet."
"I make this same recipe but instead of using ground beef, I use Jimmy Dean sausage, any flavor, I like the mild or sometimes the hot sausage, gives it a little different flavor. I eliminate the salt and pepper as well. Freeze over night and bake just before serving time.."
"I added onions but could still used more flavor."
"Had these at a party this afternoon. Excellent. Can't wait to make them myself."
