Thanks for sharing this fantastic variation on meatballs. My family loves meatballs in general but I get tired of cooking the same thing over and over again. I used Italian Bread Crumbs and added a bit of parmesan in the meat mixture (I always do that with mine). I tossed the uncooked meatballs with my sauce into the crockpot and cooked on low all day. The meatballs stayed together, did not ooze cheese and had a very good flavor. I made a double batch and served with spaghetti the first day and made meatball subs the next. I strongly recommend doubling this recipe if you have meatball lovers at your table!
