This is my mother's recipe for meatballs. They freeze well and leftovers make good meatball sandwiches served on Bollillo's toped with sauce and Provolone cheese.

"I just made the meatball exactly as instructed. They are the best meatballs I've ever had. I used a different sauce but I tasted the meatballs before I placed in the sauce. One word. Amazing!"

Very good. Used my own sauce but made meat balls according to recipe. Will use this again.. Browned meatballs in the oven b/c it's easier to get them browned evenly.
