"The recipe as follows was too watery so I added about 3/4 cup more breadcrumbs. I also did not have beef broth so I used one cup of chicken broth and a splash of soy sauce. I baked them in a marinara sauce layer for 25 minutes...came out DELICIOUS. I may use 1/2 cup of broth next time so I can use less breadcrumb but overall, these were great!"- jillrussack

trainguy 2 months agoI should have put more bread crumbs in to firm them up. when I baked them they turned into meat 'patties' so I chopped them up and added them to the sauce. I also used Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix instead of parmesan. All of this made a fantastic spaghetti sauce, my family said it was the best ever.

srbodlak 1 year agoOh yeah, these ARE good! With the one cup of bread crumbs in addition to the oatmeal, they shaped up nicely. I also made a meatloaf with part of the meat, which baked about 35 minutes.
erikawasielewski 1 year agoThe flavor is great on these! However, mine were really loose. I ended up with patties instead of balls because there was no way to shape them. But because they are so tasty I plan to make again. Thanks!

noramariecunning 1 year agoMakes a lot so i used half for balls and made half into a loaf. So yummy,
Summerobaby 2 years agoI just tried this recipe tonight and it was delish! I did not have beef broth so I skipped it in the mix and baked the meatballs over spaghetti sauce in the oven. I also used skim milk instead. My fiancée loved it and so did I. Great recipe to make on a busy work night since it is so fast, easy and pretty healthy.
Whedongeek 2 years agoBest meatballs I've ever made!
Lmconstable 2 years agoI found this recipe very 'loose'. Next time I would use less liquids... Still tasty though!
Akayj424 2 years agoso moist and delicious! I didn't have oregano, parsley or basil - so I just used a bunch of Italian spices in place.
nsp218 2 years agoPretty good. We will make these again for sure!
Thegreatgwendini 2 years agoWe love these! My 5 year old daughter helps roll them which makes it fun too. I skip using cheese but do use seasoned breadcrumbs.
jwhung 2 years agoI didn't have basil or nutmeg, and substituted chicken broth for beef stock. And I only had 1.5lbs of ground turkey so made some adjustments. It still came out pretty good, a tad salty but that probably because I eyeball everything.
Chameray 4 years agoI've had so many compliments on this recipe. The meatballs stayed so juicy and fresh and not dried out. Although my ingredients varied a little more from this recipe, I may post my own.
pkjjfdb 4 years agoI made a batch and froze them on a cookie sheet prior to the cooking stage, then stored in a freezer bag. Now I can take out as many as I need, thaw and bake. Tastes fresher than freezing after cooking.
TealWillow 4 years agoGreat recipe! My family loved them with pasta and as sandwhiches.
morganwood 4 years agoThe orginal recipe called for bread crumbs (instead of oatmeal), eggs (instead of Egg Beaters) and ground chuck (rather than ground turkey). I've made the changes to make it a bit more healthy, but these are great both ways. On 'cooking marathon' days, I'll triple the recipe and fill the freezer. A cookie dropper or portioning scoop really helps the shaping go faster. [I posted this recipe.]
