Excellent "meatballs"! I halved the recipe and now wish I hadn't. These are going to be so nice to have on had. I have to say I was very nervous about age being the only herb added to these. I don't mind sage, but it didn't seem like what I would want to taste on a meatball sandwich, but it really worked. The only changes I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans and half cracker crumbs and half breadcrumbs. They fried up nicely. I just wish I had chopped the nuts a little finer. I used just a little sauce and topped the sandwich with cheese and put in under the broiler. Thanks for sharing this yummy keeper recipe!

If you want this to be healthier, you can sub bread crumbs instead of crackers - this will cut down on sodium. You can also sub half the bread crumbs/crackers with oats. The recipe I use is slightly different and is baked, which is even healthier. Also, I like to measure out the nuts (any kind work, really) and then process til fine in the food processor. I love to make these in big batches and freeze. Great for chopping up and adding to things needing a little "meaty" texture, like soups, chili, pasta dishes, etc. One last thing - if you sub just a little cottage cheese with real cheese, they will hold together better.

Wow. I don't know how this recipe can be labeled "Healthy" with the amount of sodium and carbs in one serving? The sodium alone is off the charts!

Wow. Prepared exactly per recipe and it was love at first bit. I'm moving into a vegetarian lifestyle, and this solved my meatball problem. I already had a meatless meatloaf that my daughter named "loaf", so this is our "nutball sandwich".

Delicious! I halved the recipe and my veggie balls were just a tad loose, but loved them! I put in a hoagie with mozzarella cheese. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap july 2009.
