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.

WOW! These are FLAVOR INFUSED FANTASTIC! I made them as directed but did increase the spices. My Hubby and I both agree they are some of the best meatballs we have had. Made for the Please Review tag game.

Had DH do this which he followed as is. Came home, tasted this and loved it! Even after the next day, it was great. Had it with rice and it was filling! Thanks!
