I spent 17 summers in Italy and have had amazing meatballs and never could find a recipe that I loved until now! I use Italian seasoned breadcrumbs & bake the meatballs first. I have tried it with the 3 meat combinations and I've also done it with just beef. The 3 meat combo is the best, but don't hesitate to try this with just beef if that's all you have. I do bake mine for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees on a cookie sheet. As far as the amount of water, I use the amount directed. You know it's the right consistency if, after the ingredients are all fully mixed, it doesn't stick to the bowl....the full meat mixture adheres together, if meat sticks to your fingers in clumps, it's too moist. (I did use too much water once and the meatballs fell apart). Finally, what really will give your meatballs 5 stars is the sauce you put them in!
