    loof's Note:

    These tender meatballs feature the classic Greek flavor combination of lemon, garlic, and oregano. Beef and lamb are combined with a simple red wine sauce; if you change the meats used to chicken and/or turkey, just use white wine instead of red. From "The Meatball Cookbook Bible"...

      Wow, these meatballs were really tasty and easy to make! I loved the baking instructions, the time and temperature were right on. The sauce was great as well. I could see making regular meatballs this way as well. The family loved these, they are going into the favorites file! Made for Pink Panthers on the Prowl for ZWT9.

      Astounding, perfect texture on these meatballs. I'm sitting here wondering if I can convert my Mom's Italian meatball recipe to this panade use. And so easy to cook via baking. The high heat resulted in really nicely browned bottoms. The flavor was very good, as well. Thanks so much for a great dinner! ZWT9

      Perfectly delicious! Taste, texture, timing, and of course I love the cooking technique. Roasted asparagus at same time so was ultra easy. Thank you for posting.
