My family all loved this recipe as a Thanksgiving appetizer. I made them exactly as instructed. They have a simple and delicious flavor. I made them a little smaller than the recipe calls for, and ended up with 35 or so meatballs. I used Pam so they wouldn't stick, but some of them were kind of crumbly. I was a little disappointed in that, but my family raved about how good they were. I made them ahead of time and froze them as well.
