So yummy, these are addicting. A family tried and true favorite. I make a ton of these meatballs and freeze them. I serve these with rice. My family gobbles this up and I bet yours will too.

This was so easy to put together and perfect with rice as suggested. I think these would be great as an appetizer too.
