My boys loved snacking on these meatballs every single time they were at my mother-in-laws house. She shared the recipe with me so I could try them at home and they were so easy to make and are always a hit for dinner or as an appetizer for parties!
**Be sure to cook long enough to prevent being raw in the middle**
STORAGE OF MEATBALLS:
You can even make these meatballs and freeze them for later. I only recommend freezing them for up to 6 months max. The defrost well in pasta sauce and then would be ready for some noodles of your choice.

My kids love having them with pasta sauce and spaghetti noodles. Sometimes as an appetizer I make them into mini-meatball sandwiches on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls or Sweet and Sour Meatballs.
