      Yummy! Yummy! I made exactly as posted, and loved the fontina cheese in the meatballs....may have added a bit too much! I was surprised at how quickly these were done. Have to admit I used a meat thermometer since it was pork. Thanks for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2014

      I had to make a few changes based to things I had on hand. I used Coppa and prosciutto instead of salami. I also used San Juan Parmesan cheese instead of fontina cheese. I didn't have milk so I added another egg and no bread so I used 1/2 cup bread crumbs. I also didn't have any green olives and I really wish that I would - next time I will make sure I have some as I think it would benefit from that flavor. I didn't have white wine vinegar so I used red wine garlic vinegar. Even with all these changes these were great. Thanks
