Creole Meatballs

Recipe by karen in tbay

My husband wanted a spicy meatball and teases me for my zaar addiction and so he searches through my shelves of cookbooks. This dish is from 365 ways to cook hamburger by Doyne Nickerson and is absolutely delish, so I just add to share.

I made this last night and served with brown rice. These are absolutely GREAT!!!! The only thing I didn't do, was roll the meatballs in flour. Everything else was exactly as directed. Definately a keeper!!!!
