      Very moist and delicious!! Not at all soupy! Be sure to squeeze the bread after soaking and don't add the water. I added a small handful of shredded mozzerella to the mix and these meatballs came out AWESOME!!

      Meatballs were good but the recipe is not. I followed the measurements to the letter and what I got was a big bowl of meat soup. 2 additional cups of bread crumbs and 4 additional slices of bread (not wet) and things came together. Because we didn't want them to fall apart in the sauce we decided to bake them in the oven at 350 for 15-20 min.

      YUMMY!! I never bake/fry my meatballs first and I was looking for a recipe that would give me moist meatballs as mine were never perfect...this is it! The secret must be in the white bread because that's the only thing different from my method. I used fresh garlic and a little fresh basil I had frozen/chopped and some dried to make up the difference. I used my own sauce. This is my new go-to recipe for meatballs. Thanks so much for posting!
