These were fantastic! Changes I made: used turkey sausage as this is what we had in the freezer, used very finely crushed saltines as we were out of breadcrumbs, increased saltines to 1/2 c as the mixture was a bit too goopy to form a proper meatball, threw in some fresh garlic, garlic powder, a liberal amount of red pepper flakes cuz we like things spicy, a dusting of ground oregano and a few crushed fennel seeds. I made 16 balls out of this so had to bake about 30 minutes, til they were nice and brown on their bottoms :) and oozing melted parmesan. The texture and consistency of the finished product was great, tender yet firm enough to withstand simmering in a red gravy, or even a bbq sauce if you care to change up the sausage flavor/seasoning a bit. I served these with penne and roasted tomatoes and roasted hot Italian garlic with crumbled feta cheese and fresh chopppd basil from my potted Globe. They were a bit hit with my family.
