Italian Sausage Meatballs

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Steve_La Mirada

I developed this recipe as I was reviewing many other meatball recipes. The spices in the sweet Italian sausage give it the extra kick. These meatballs can be frozen for use later. Or used immediately in your favorite sauce. These are also a great appetizer with dipping sauce.

Wonderful recipe, even my picky toddler boys liked it! I used Italian turkey sausage which tasted great and has very little fat.
