    Not sure how to rate this but wanted to share that my meatballs also fell apart in the 1st frying batch so I added bread crumbs to the rest of the meat in hopes of salvaging the meal. They were tasty but I'm not sure I'll chance making these again. If I do I will try with less potatoes.

    Perhaps I just missed something but this recipe did not work for me at all. I did let the potatoes sit in water before they were mashed, so maybe that was the problem but these meatballs didn't hold together for me at all and when I put them in sauce, they totally fell apart and it looked like mush. I fixed it all up though into a casserole with noodles and cheese and it was ok. The flavor of the meat"crumbles" was great, they just wouldn't hold together.

    This is a great recipe for two reasons. One, its really tasty as is. Two, if you're pressed for time (as I often am) you could use pre-made meatballs and still get a delicious sauce. The nutmeg makes the difference -- I'm convinced. Thanks for sharing Sue!
