These meatballs were very juicy with a nice crust from the breadcrumbs. I used Panko crumbs. They stayed together during browning with no problem. I am not sure but my meatballs were not cooked all the way threw once reaching the browness I liked. Could have been the size of mine or that I did not flatten them enough? I placed them in the oven for 15min at 375 degrees. Thank you Shadows I will be making these again.
