    The Cooking Jar's Note:

    What comes to mind when you think of meatballs? Some might remember as far back as Lady and the Tramp and the romantic scene shared over a plate of meatballs. Or you might think of Subway's pretty decent meatball sub with marinara sauce. Some might even think of trips to Ikea and the inevitable plate of Swedish Meatballs that somehow go hand in hand with buying furniture.

      This is the first recipe I saw that didn't require any milk. The meatballs are juicy but could use a little more seasoning.

      Seriously good! I wanted something simple, and this was just right. I didn't have Italian breadcrumbs, so I used panko and Italian seasoning, and it was great. Definitely use more than a teaspoon of salt, since it doesn't specify an amount, and I used to little, but sprinkled some on top while they were still a bit oily from baking, and it was fine. I put the slightest bit of olive oil on the pan, and turned once during cooking, which I definitely recommend. Will make this again.
