Copycat recipe. This is also the way I make my meatballs. Using the three kinds of meat makes for a more moist and light meatball. I have also used this recipe for meatloaf.

I was hesitant, not seeing any oregano or basil in this recipe, but these meatballs are OUTSTANDING!! I slowly simmer my meatballs in the sauce because I like the way it makes the sauce taste, but other than that, I followed the recipe. Thanks, Marie!

I think this is the only recipe on Zaar that has the obligate 3 meats to make a perfect Italian meatball. This is the true meatball of Italian chefs (look up meatballs on & see), thank you very much Marie!

I couldn't find ground veal in the grocery store I went to so I doubled the beef and they were still great. Easy to make and loved by all (including my 2, 6 and 7 year olds). Will make again soon.
