Top Review by LARavenscroft

Excellent meatballs and very easy to make. Like one of the other reviewers, I didn't use the olive oil - just baked the meatballs on a wire rack over a cookie sheet. I got about 40 meatballs - would definitely double this recipe and make extras to put in the freezer for quick weeknight meals. Thanks for posting this. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
