I made this recipe for a charity cook-off for our office. It won the prize for the best dish!
It took about an hour to roll all the balls, and put it all together-- the recipe did not turn out anything like what I had imagined. The meatballs are bland, the sauce has no particular taste-- I made them in advnace planning to serve them as an appetizer at Christmas- i'm not sure i'll even put them out. I would NOT suggest this recipe to anyone... very dissapointing!
I'm sorry but I just made these for a taste test for a bridal shower I will be hosting soon and they are so bland...I added salt & peper & extra garlic and they were tasteless...they were moist though...I guess the search is still on...
This was an okay recipe, but nothing to jump for. The meat was soggy and hard to form, and quite flavorless. You could MAKE this good by altering it a lot- less milk, more flavor in the actual meat, etc. It was refreshing to find a meatball recipe that didn't need to be fried. And where it said to stir, STIR?? I don't think that was possible... you'd just break them apart! Overall, I guess I'd say try another recipe first! : )
Made these for a party and everyone loved them! Thanks for a great recipe! 8-)
This recipe took 45 minutes, start to finish. I doubled the recipe and only came up with 27 meatballs. That made me think mine were bigger than the original so I upped the cooking time to 30 minutes. They came out great. This has a nice flavor. I didn't even marinate them, just made the sauce and poured straight on top. I served mine by spooning the meatballs into bowls and pouring a little sauce on top. That way, you could roll the meatball around in the juice and give it really great flavor.
Made this for Christmas eve and received 2 thumbs up from my 11 year old grandson. I'm not sure what size meatballs others came up with, but I used a pound of hamburger and made small ones (a little larger than quarter size) and it only made 36 meatballs. Since the recipe called for 1/2 lb and it was suppose to make 36 meatballs, I was expecting the pound of hamburger to make more. I was very surprised when it made 36. Next time I will use 2 lbs.
This recipe was bland, had to spice it up. Try my Gatta Have Meatballs recipe
