These meatballs are my grandmother's famous recipe. She makes them all the time at big gatherings and they are a delicious alternative to fattening regular meatballs. I thought I would share this great recipe with you all. I am not sure exactly how many meatballs this makes. It does make quite a lot though. You can certainly scale this recipe down, or freeze the meatballs for later meals.
