I LOVE this recipe!!! I have made it for holiday gatherings as well as luncheons for work. Even my six-year-old and 2-year-old love these meatballs. I do use minced onion instead of chopped onion though. It is more kid friendly. They make great leftovers and snacks also!!!

This recipe is one of my family's favorite for any get together. My son has friends come when they hear mom's fixing meatballs. My daughter wants them for her graduation party. I like this recipe because you can make the meatballs up way ahead of time and freeze them until your ready to bake them.
