Jason's Favorite Meatballs

Ann Simmons


I got this recipe from Taste of Home years ago. These were my youngest son Jason's favorite. Sadly we lost him in 2001. It is hard for me to make these anymore but I have wonderful memories. Maybe one day I will be able to make them again. They are delicious. Jason loved them to make meatball subs.
