Great flavor in these meatballs, and so easy to make! We really loved the spiciness. With the parmesan being salty, I would cut back a little on the salt next time, but this is a solid 5 star recipe.

Great tasting meatballs! The spices were spot on and we really enjoyed them in our spaghetti. I added them to Linda's Spaghetti Sauce in place of the ground beef in that recipe. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! **Made for Culinary Quest - Suitcase Gourmets**

Yummy meatballs and very similar to our family meatball recipe. I made 1/2 of the recipe and made as written with the exception that I didn't add the basil, oregano and garlic to the meat mixture, but instead added it to the tomato sauce mixture that I made with the meatballs. I only made 4 meatballs for myself and then saved the rest of the meat mixture to use for more meatballs or a meatloaf in the future. I topped my pasta and meatballs with more fresh grated Parmesan cheese and served with garlic bread and salad, yummy!!! Made for CQ 2014. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Meatballs are usually a hit or miss thing with me, usually a miss. These were awesome. Great flavor and oh so tender without falling apart. I froze half for meatball subs later in the week! Great recipe! Made for Culinary Quest 2014

What a wonderful, tasty and moist meatball! Made this full amount so I had some to freeze and used some in a marinara sauce over pasta...DELICIOUS! Definately going into my Favorites of 2012 cookbook and I know I will be using this often. Thank you for posting another wonderful recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2012.

I'm with everyone else on this recipe ~ Your meatballs are absolutely great! Easy to make & wonderful flavor! I made the full recipe, then chilled & froze a number of them in packages of six for the 2 of us! A very nice keeper of a recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]

These meatballs are great!! I had to adjust a little based on what I had, but they turned out excellent. I used a 90/10 ground beef mix, left out the pepper flakes and realized after I started I was out of eggs so they were not added and surprisingly without them they stayed together and were not dry! Used for Movie Night Meatball Subs. Made for ZWT 7-HOT PINK LADIES.
