"Plan ahead the beef mixture needs to be chilled for at least 8-24 hours before shaping and cooking, or you may shape into meatballs and then refrigerate which ever works the best for you, I would suggest to double up leaving the garlic amount the same (6 medium cloves) cause these are really good, 1 1/2 pounds should give you about 15-17 meatballs depending on the size you shape them"

I have to say these are the best meatballs I have ever eaten and I don't think there is a better one out there, so I highly recommend these. If you haven't tried them yet, put them on the menu now. Delicious, moist and so flavorful!

I wanted to have meatball subs to bring to the pot luck Christmas party at my friends house so I made these. They were so delicious! I would have to say they are the best ones I have ever tasted and I know the crowd there loved them too because the crock pot was empty when it came time to go home. I had several requests for the recipe too so you know what that means. They will be made again and again including for my own Christmas celebration at my house!

To lower the carbs I used oat bread and made my own crumbs. These meatballs are super delicious and cut easily with a fork. I had them over spaghetti squash for one heck of a delicious dinner!

What a delicious recipe! Made these for our dinner along with a homemade marinara sauce and a green salad. The rest of the meatballs I froze for later. So "melt in your mouth" meatballs and one recipe I will use for many recipes. Thank you!
