These are cute and quite tasty. The recipe makes about 80 meatballs so I freeze some for a quick meal. I have used marinara sauce, sweet and sour sauce and a cream of mushroom sauce and they all taste great. It's great just to pull them out of the freezer unthaw and warm up pour your sauce over and you have meat for dinner or a quick appetizer.
