Potluck Meatballs Recipe

I've found that these mini meatballs make a hearty, "can't-miss" appetizer year round. They are always well-received at a potluck,and the only "utensil" I need to supply is toothpicks. They also make a good entree over noodles.

"I added a cup of rice under my meatballs and doubled the liquid (but not the corn starch). It came out awesome! I will definiately be making this again."

"Beef consomme comes out more like condensed cream of chicken soup. Not a lot of water in beef broth. You will find it next to the soups."
