Made these meat balls for cocktail parties over 40 years ago and today we're still enjoying this recipe.. If you don't care to make them from scratch buy a bag of ready made Italian Meat Balls. I have to suffer and make them from scratch as my son takes notice when they are all uniform in size. Guess mine are a little out of shape when I'm near the end of broiling.

The sauce is what really makes this a wonderful dish! I've also used this sauce on ribs and received many compliments. Enjoy!!!

You can make these ahead of time and freeze. Don't leave them on the stove unattended as mine sometimes disappear!!!
