About this recipe: These meatballs are great! I came up with them on a whim one night while searching through my pantry trying to answer the age old question, 'What's for dinner?' My family LOVE these! For dinner, I like to serve them with a side of steamed rice to go along with the meatballs. I hope you enjoy!
