These meatballs rate among the best I have ever made! My kids loved them, and so did my husband. I followed the recipe except I didn't add cumin, just a personal taste preference. These meatballs are great to make ahead and freeze but are also just as convenient to make the night you are having them, from stove to table in just under an hour.
