    Found the meatballs way too big but great tasting. Next time will make smaller meatballs so more to go around.

    I thought these meatballs were quite good, and my kids loved them. It is very similar to a recipe I already use, though I must say I've never made them into eyeballs before!

    I made this instead of regular spaghetti and meatballs, and my kids thought it was them most fun dinner ever! All healthy food, but it looks gross so the boys went crazy for it.
