Mom's Italian Meatballs

Recipe by Debbie R.

These are very cheesey. Unfortunately, they can fall apart while frying. If they do, just scrape up the bits and put that in your spaghetti sauce also. It's hard not to eat them all up as they come out of the pan, they're that good.

I made these as a "stand alone" dish to eat with cheesy pasta and my family COULD NOT get enough!! These were great! I used fresh cheeses,fresh oregano, and fresh basil. These are very flavorful and I will be making these often. Very easy- just keep moving them around til cooked b/c they will stick. Made for Witchin' Kitchen of ZWT7.
