“These meatballs are made with Italian pork sausage that is removed from the casings. Yield is only estimated depending on the size of the meatballs. Don't leave out the toasted pine nuts and currants! Take the time for purchase the ingredients to make these. I suggest to double the ingredients, these are so good! Use only small currants for this.”
20 meatballs
