Savory Meatballs Recipe

A neighbor shared this recipe with me at a block party back in the '60s. It's been a favorite of my family's and is easy to fix for a large group.

"Good recipe - I baked them instead of frying and did my own sauce :)"

"So tasty! I used ground pork instead of beef and it worked just as nice I think. You have to try this one!"

"Good but need to double the ground mustard, poultry seasoning and make the meatballs smaller in size."

"It seems I always have someone begging me to make meatballs. This is the recipe they want because I've made it many times. I usually serve it with noodles or mashed potatoes and sometimes rice."
