“This is a Rachael Ray recipe. I changed the application of it though. She had it as chicken patties and I made it into meatballs. :) The sauce is my addition. It is optional. These have a little bite to them. You can increase or decrease the bite by adjusting the seasonings.”
20-24 meatballs depending on the size
