Made for Spring PAC 2013 - For 2 of us, my orig intent was to halve this recipe .. BUT I try not to halve 1 egg & I decided another reviewer had the right idea. I made a full recipe of these tasty meatballs (as written using the stove-top method), we dined on some of them as part of an appy nite & then I froze the rest for another time when I need something quick (or easy) to serve. These meatballs are cook-friendly to prepare, ingredient-friendly & best of all very taste-friendly. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. My bet is I'll be asked so share it too when we use our supply from the freezer. :)
I made this with some mild Italian sausage & the resulting meat balls made for REALLY GOOD eating! A nice change for me from those with ground beef! I served these over rice, & that was nice, but another time I want to make them as appetizers! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

These are nice and tasty little meatballs, we loved them and both my girls gobbled them down. I didn't have any stuffing mix so used your Recipe #91610 and it worked really well together. The panko being lovely and light and the ginger complimenting the pork sausage nicely. I doubled the recipe to freeze half.
