I saw a recipe for meatballs on televison, and tweaked it until it came out perfectly. I make this for a lot of parties and they go fast! I just put them in a crockpot with the sauce and let people eat them as is, or as meatball subs! If you want to get ahead, u can make and freeze the meatballs ahead of time. Just warm the sauce and reheat meatballs in the oven before combining them,
