The meatballs have good flavor, but I could do without the breading and it certainly would be less messy. And I had a LOT (maybe 2 bread slices) of crumbs that I threw away. I had some asiago cheese in the fridge, so I added a small cube to each skewer; it really enhanced the flavor of the appetizer. I like the portion-control aspect of this, and it would be nice for a buffet table or finger food for a party. The next time I make these, I'll try half breaded and the rest unbreaded and see which turns out better.
