      Great Meatballs of Fire! So to speak. These were delicious - a really nice change of pace from the usual tomato sauce based meatballs. Two changes I can think of - I used soy milk instead of milk for the breadcrumbs and I sauteed a chopped onion and minced garlic clove and added it to the meat mixture for added flavor (standard addition to any dish I make). I served these with mashed potatoes and the gravy was just perfect! Thank you for sharing, I will be making this often!
