This was my mama's recipe for the meatballs that she made often before she passed away. I have been making them for years now and taking them to school functions, church, work dinners, and reunions. I have never left without someone wanting the recipe. My family loves them, too. I searched meatballs on here for a while and never found the exact recipe so here it is. It makes about 60 meatballs so is great for a crowd.
