    A big hit at our wedding. Meatballs can be formed 1 day ahead and kept in refrigerator uncooked, and then just cooked and served.

      Very flavorful meatballs! I used 2 links of Italian sausage, and I think that was just right. I did not see where to divide the ginger in the first step, so I just threw the whole teaspoon into the meat mixture and that was just fine.

      This was wonderful, but with LOTS more spices. I added about a 1/4 cup of soy sauce to the meatball mixture. I doubled the sauce, but basically quadrupled (or more) the sauce spices. Got lots of compliments.
