Delicate Meatballs

READY IN: 43mins
Recipe by Ernst in the Kitchen

This recipe creates a nice, large & tender meatball. 2-3 make a meal. I usually make a double batch of these and freeze the leftovers after they've cooled. The frozen meatballs can be dropped frozen into a lightly-simmering sauce for a great dinner on a busy weekday.
