These were made for me by my cousins. They are easy and so moist and tasty.

I made these for my daughter (see pic) and she loved them! We ate them with cheese tortellini and a tomato herb Parmesan sauce. The first batch needed salt and less meat. The second batch we added salt and just slightly less meat, made them golf ball sized and they cooked perfectly in the oven!! Yummy! And we had extra to freeze!
