  • Form mixture into 2-inch balls.
  • Fry in lightly oiled pan, turning to brown on all sides OR, lightly oil a baking sheet and bake meatballs at 400°F, turning several times, until all sides are browned. Be careful not to overcook and dry out meatballs in the oven. Start checking after 10 minutes and cook no longer than 30 minutes.
