The meatballs are surprisingly moist and flavorful for using only beef. I normally don't measure the seasonings so you may have to adjust, I also don't measure the breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup is about right but sometimes I adjust. I play around with this recipe and it always comes out good. Use a really good quality, chunky tomato sauce if you are using a jarred one.
This is just so I don't forget the quantities. It is an easy recipe and you can throw it together in no time - then when it is baking you can get on with other things. This is a Paula Deen recipe which is just the same as I have always made but never measured!
