Have these either as a little meatball appetizer or in a tortilla similar to a souvlaki; either way is great.

  3. Shape mixture into meatballs, by the teaspoonful, about 1-inch.
  4. Place them on an ungreased baking pan with a lipped side, and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
