        I used to make this recipe years ago and they were always a hit.

        I made my own meatballs as I don't think we could buy bags of ready made then. I used same ingredients but put it in large saucepan or 5 qt dutch oven and cooked covered on top of stove for about 45 minutes. Just offering an alternative cooking method.

          Wakiki Meatballs...when I first got married I copied that exact recipe onto an index card from my mom's Betty Crocker cookbook!

          Sail7Seas...I always buy my meatballs just because mine always fall apart for any recipe I make. I am a lousy meatball maker.
