Years ago, a man used to come into my mother in laws work and would bring these meatballs. He owned a local catering company and he was known for these amazing meatballs. My mother in law told me that he would have to sneak the meatballs into her and the other people in her department because all of their other co-workers would be mad if he didn’t bring any for them.
After he passed away, my mother in law ran into his wife one day and she asked if she could have the recipe for the meatballs. Boy am I glad that she did because these meatballs are fabulous!
I doubled the sauce because I like to have enough for the rice. These meatballs would be great served alone as an appetizer,for a party, or on a hoagie bun for a meatball sandwich.
My family loved these meatballs! My seven year old said that they were the best meatballs he had ever tasted. For a kid that can be pretty picky, that is quite the compliment!
