These were always one of my favorites growing up and they are a family favorite at our house now. The recipe is super easy but results in a very hearty meal with minimal effort that will leave everyone cleaning their plate. Plus, if you have kids that love to help in the kitchen they will love rolling the meatballs. These can also be made smaller (with shorter cook time) if you’d like to serve them as an appetizer instead of a meal.
