I made this recipe quite by accident. I was reading a spaghetti sauce recipe and thought it was a recipe for making meatballs. I made this mistake 15 years ago and have been using this "made up" recipe since. It's a great hit with my kids and friends. You can either bake, broil or fry the meatballs.
