The balls are very rich and feeling, but delicious. I also serve with a green salad. They were a hit the first time I made them and get better every time I make them. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These would be good for any party - football, Mardi Gras, a holiday party, etc. I really liked that these are baked not fried. The sweet crawfish tails mixed with the onions and parsley is perfect. By rolling in the bread crumbs before baking, they come out of the oven with a slight crust. Delish!
