Outstanding! Simple recepie, and tasty!
Lessened the milk and added more parsley. Other than that, this dish tasted great!
I used fresh minced garlic and no milk. Doubled the parsley and baked at 350 for 28-30 minutes.

These were really good. Easy and quick to make. Mine were done in 25 min. I used coconut milk and Panko bread crumbs.
Super tasty! The kids loved them, too. You could easily find ways to alter the recipe, like adding veggies or other flavors.

super easy and not too many ingredients. I added a little parmesan.
They were good. I pan fried then first then put them in the oven. About 10 to 15 minutes before they were done, I added a beef gravy to them. Served over rice with vegetables on the side. Very good meal.
great, i will doit again

Easy & tasty just as advertised
My friends loved them! Next time I will cut up the onions smaller because with bigger chunks it is harder to get the meatballs to stick together.

Perfect!! Made exactly what the direction says. Quick and easy! Definitely will make it again!
I used ground italian turkey and an ice cream scoop. I made nearly 30 meatballs. I broiled them, let them cool, and used them for soup. They were great

Yummy!! I do with quick oats instead of bread crumbs. I’m going to try it as mini meatloafs tonight!

Really good! Love how quick and easy with simply, tasty ingredients. Only reason they didn’t get 5 stars is because nothing will ever be as good as my grandma’s meatballs!

Modified the recipe (no milk; used 1 ground beef package, 2 turkey) and the meatballs came out really delicious!
