These good-tasting sausage meatballs disappear before anything else on the table or buffet. They have a delightful tang with a bit of crunch from the water chestnuts. I've used the recipe for over 20 years because it's so easy to do and comes out perfect every time. —Claire Stryker, Boulder City, Nevada
