    Made these for a party and served with peanut satay sauce on the side. Very tasty and disappeared pretty quickly. Nice, easy and a fast recipe to make if time is an issue. Thank you for sharing.  -  04 Jul 2014


    If you want to try bringing this to an even better state of Nirvana: Use only 1/2 lb of beef and add 1/2 pound of ground pork. Also replace skim milk with 1/2 a cup of ricotta cheese. I think you'll find you'll have some moister more flavorful meatballs.  -  05 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've been using LTH's recipe for some time now and its my staple. I have subbed an egg for the milk without any problems. Also, I never have seasoned bread crumbs so I just up the Italian seasoning (can't tell you by how much cause I don't measure this recipe anymore). If I'm just making this for myself, I add some additional sriacha for more heat (or if I don't have the Frank's at home) I bake these on a slightly greased cookie sheet and flip halfway. These freeze great cooked or raw. Oh and I've used 80/20, 90/10, and 95/5 beef with these and they've all turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!!!  -  05 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
