  3. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning gently to brown all sides. Cook 2 to 3 minutes more or until meat is no longer pink. Remove drippings. Pour sauce over meatballs; heat until sauce is hot, stirring occasionally.

I took this recipe and made a few changes and it was delicious. 1. I used a mixture of ground pork and beef instead of turkey (.75 lbs beef, .25 lbs pork). 2. Instead of frying the meatballs I baked them. 350 degrees, 30-35 minutes.

I used this as a base recipe. They turned out stupendous! Made them three days in a row. Changes I made: used ground beef, add salt and pepper to taste, cubed mozarella instead of using cheese string and I breaded the meatballs. whisk egg in bowl, salt and pepper to taste. Have one bowl with 1/4 cup flour and another bowl 1 cup seasoned italian breadcrumbs. Then dip meatballs in flour, coat in egg mixture and coat in breadcrumbs. Super delicious with a crispy coating!

Recipe was simple and quite easy. I found it odd that there were no other seasonings besides the bread crumbs so I added salt, pepper and onion powder. I would probably try baking the meatballs next time as I would prefer not to use the oil in the skillet. Recipe turned out moist and tasty meatballs.
