I recommend doubling these; your guests will inhale them unless you beat them to it! Easy, delicious and addicting, this recipe was passed onto me by my Aunt Lisa. She served these on Xmas and they were devoured by our family, including my 4 y/o son who I think ate the most of us all.

These are great! I used ground country sausage, and replaced the celery with green pepper, and used fresh garlic (2 cloves). I put the onion, green pepper, some green onion, & garlic into the food processor so that everything was finely minced to distribute the flavors better. Beware, the mixture is very stiff, so I did add 2 egg whites to moisten it a bit. These are definitely a hit, I served them to about 10 neighbors last night, and everyone wanted the recipe. By the way, I yielded about 50 meatballs. Thanks for sharing such good stuff! --Marla

This is another appetizer that made it to our potluck get together. These meatballs were made early in the day the heated up in the micro for the party. We eliminated ther celery completely. Everyone loved these and we loved the fact that we could make them up ahead of time. Thanks for sharing, The Dancing Cook.

I don't make these myself - however my coworker uses this recipe to make these, usually doubling the garlic. They seem to be pretty popular, but I think serving them alongside some dipping sauces (possibly a honey mustard?) would be helpful.
