"I found the original recipe on another site and it was posted by MakeDollarHoller. Of course I had to make a few " TWEAKS ". I can't leave a recipe alone,no matter how good it is. This is a VERY dense meatball. Now the seasonings are just "guesstimates",so feel free to adjust them to your own tastes. And if you want to add other seasonings and spices,feel free to do so. Serve over mashed potatoes or even noodles. Posted to " ZAZZ " on 2/26/15. " Keep Smiling :)"
