    Goes great over cooked noodles although you could easily serve these alone as an appetizer. Enjoy!

      Not sure how to rate this but wanted to share that my meatballs also fell apart in the 1st frying batch so I added bread crumbs to the rest of the meat in hopes of salvaging the meal. They were tasty but I'm not sure I'll chance making these again. If I do I will try with less potatoes.

      Perhaps I just missed something but this recipe did not work for me at all. I did let the potatoes sit in water before they were mashed, so maybe that was the problem but these meatballs didn't hold together for me at all and when I put them in sauce, they totally fell apart and it looked like mush. I fixed it all up though into a casserole with noodles and cheese and it was ok. The flavor of the meat"crumbles" was great, they just wouldn't hold together.
