EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Accompany this appetizer with thin slices of toasted French bread to catch the sauce when serving at holiday parties or any time of year.

Evenly shaped meatballs are easy when you pat the meat mixture into the baking dish and cut into 6 rows by 5 rows. Roll the squares into balls and return to the dish to bake.
