Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

From Quick Cooking (now calle Simple & Delicious). This versatile meatball mix that makes about 12 dozen meatballs, or 5 batches of 30 each that can be frozen for future use. I mix it up, set bowls of it on the table, line my three kids up armed with their own baking sheets & measuring spoons. They have a great time making the meatballs, then I bake them and "flash" freeze them, package them up and I've got lots of meatballs ready for recipes such as Meatball Sandwiches, Sweet-And-Sour Meatballs, Swedish Meatballs and, of course, Spaghetti!
