Recipe by Alskann

These are different from your "same ole, same ole" meatballs. The spices make the difference.

My biggest complaint about this recipe is that there's no way it makes 8 servings. Two little meatballs would maybe be something you would serve as an appetizer. I wish I had realized that before I went to the trouble. It took a bit of prep. The recipe was easy to follow. It did have a nice flavor. If I make this again it will be doubled at least.
