“So, So simple, delicious and addictive meatballs!!! I took these to work often when I worked at our largest newspaper. The aroma permeated all 5 floors, so many people (mostly men) from different departments stopped by to make sure they got some before they disappeared. I used 5 lbs of frozen small meatballs and they were gone well before day's end. (We also had tons of other goodies) I make them for reunions, etc. and everyone loves them BUT...., men in particular loved them most. I personally can't get enough of them and I'm a female!!!”
