MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2014

These meatballs are wonderful! I used 1 1/2# of ground beef and increased the remaining ingredients by 1/2. I used a small scoop to make mini meatballs (51 meatballs) and put half of the them in the freezer for a future meal. I served the other half with my home-canned spaghetti sauce over linguini. My husband and I enjoyed the meatballs and I will definitely be making them again!
