“I got this recipe from Family Fun Magazine some time ago. I make them often because I freeze the extra and use later in various other recipes. Most recently I found a recipe here called "Lotsa Veggies Meatball Soup" and used them with that recipe and it turned out amazing. They can be served with pasta dishes or with bar-b-que sauce over them as an appetizer. I hope you enjoy them and I wouild love to hear feedback!!!”
100 meatballs
