    LitaLou's Note:

    This recipe is the very definition of "meatballs" for me. My brother and I grew up with it, and then my niece and nephew did, too. Make sure the meat mixture is good and cold when you make out the balls and it will hold together much better. This is my very favorite comfort food. Serve with mashed potatoes, and enjoy!
