I adapted this recipe and it turned out great! I cut the recipe in half, reduced the spices and bread crumbs (about 2 tsp. each of the spices, 3/4 C crumbs, 1/2 package onion soup), and added 1...

I don't get the high review for this recipe. If you're going to buy 3 POUNDS of beef, then you may as well buy FRESH parsley and oregano too! I didn't really like these. Firstly, these absolu...

This recipe turned out very well and reminds me of the ones I grew up with as a child. I'm cooking a batch for my local Firefighters right now! SingleGuyWhoCooks? I guess your family didn't co...

I'm curious if the person who submitted this lives in high altitude as I am at sea level and the meatballs were done in 30 minutes and even then that seemed a bit excessive. I halved the recipe ...

It was EXCELLENT!! I followed the advise of AMFISCHER about cutting back on the spices, but the one thing that I changed was that I didn't brown the meatballs first. I simmered them in the sauce...

This was my first time making meatballs and they came out excellent.My boyfriend gushed over them.I put the meatballs and sauce over spaghetti. I was very pleased with the easiness and delicious...

These meatballs were so overpowering with oregano. Instead of 5 T. of oregano and parsley, it should only be 1 T. Then, I would add 1 egg to help moisten the meatballs. They ended up being re...
