What Gramps knows about meatballs is a lot! These were flavorful and tender. I simmered them in a marinara sauce similar to Gramps Spaghetti Sauce, but I had an open bottle of red wine, and added some of that to the mix. I served these as sandwiches with the sauce and some provolone and mozzarella. Thanks for posting!
