    These are the best meatballs I have ever made! I used grass fed beef and always make my bread crumbs from scratch. Made these for a varsity boys’ soccer party and they were a hit! Even my daughter who will not eat beef usually, liked them! This will become one of our family recipe.

    Turned out well. confused by directions of 1/2 dry basil... 1/2 tsp? 1/2 tbsp? 1/2 stalk? Otherwise, really good recipe.

    Delicious, tender and full of flavors, the parmesan gave it a nice flavor when browned.

    I used 1 lb ground Italian sweet sausage and 1/2 lb ground chicken. Added an extra half if everything since I added the extra meat. Turned out amazing!

    I cookes them for 25 minutes and they came out pretty dry but the flavor was there. I may have to cook for 20 minutes next time.

    Came out good. I used plain bread crumbs. 1 egg instead of 2 & 2 tsp dried garlic powder. 4 large garlic cloves for 1 lb of meat is too much for me.

    Loved it! Easy to follow directions and delicious!! I cooked till 30 min, but I believe 23-25 min is enough. Pull and test for yourself for moistness/juiciness around these times.
