      The taste of the meatballs is excellent. Loved the nutmeg and allspice. I'd never used a mixer to mix meatballs, so this was a first for me. I found the meatballs very fluid, and I was afraid they would fall apart in the skillet. But they kept their shape very well, and tasted wonderful. The gravy/sauce was a little "beef broth" tasting, so I added some nutmeg to it and also tossed in some fat free half and half. Served over noodles for a delicious meal. Made for Photo Tag. Thanks for sharing!!
