 I plan to have just a bunch of appetizers on hand for Thursday. My hubby works Christmas eve till in the wee hours so on Christmas we declare it a pajama day and snack all day. I plan on making a cheese ball, sausages and these meatballs would be great to have as well!

 I have made these meatballs 3 times in the last two months. The first two times I really didn’t use enough ground beef because my family loved them so much they kept going back for seconds and thirds. So this time I used double the meat that I normally do and we were able to have some leftovers! When making these, plan at least a half an hour in the kitchen, depending on how fast you roll your balls, but after that the oven does all of the work for you and you are done! ENJOY!
