Great little appetizers. I make these every year at Christmas and they are always a hit. I make my own plum sauce and have included the recipe on just a pinch. It's way better than the prepackaged sauces .
Soak the bread in the buttermilk and mix it with your fingers until it is almost completely liquefied. Mix all ingredients for meatballs together until well incorporated. Adding more of less breadcrumbs to meet desired texture for meatballs. Roll into balls
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Add oil to large skillet, brown meatballs in oil rotating the pan to get a good sear on all sides. Remove meatballs with slotted spoon to baking pan. When all meatballs have been browed bake for 10 to 20 minutes depending on size of meatballs.
Remove meatballs from oven place back in large skillet and pour plum sauce over top. cook a couple of minutes to warm sauce. Place on toothpicks and ready to serve. Makes between 40 and 80 meatballs depending on size.
