    I saw these meatballs being made on TV and my mouth would not stop watering. I made them the next night and they tasted even better than I expected!

      I was very happy with the results of these meatballs. I was actually trying to find a lost recipe of mine for meatballs and this one seemed to be the closest match. Thank you very much for posting, they were really awesome!

      A gem of a recipe! There's nothing not to love about these meatballs. The flavour is incredible, the texture is soft and moist, and the aroma is out of this world. I used a bit of red onion instead of a shallot and shredded cheese instead of the finely grated cheese. I baked the meatballs on a sprayed, foil-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Perfect! This is the kind of recipe I'd double next time to have extra to freeze. Thanks for a keeper, JoJoStar!
