Momma Jan's Gigantic Meatballs

Why it's on our list

Momma Janice learned this epic meatball recipe from her Italian mother in law. The DiRomualdo's have been known to eat this communal style with everyone eating from the same big bowl in the middle of the table. These versatile meatballs can be served by themselves, with pasta or as a meatball sandwich. It's also been said it's delish as leftovers on buttered toast.

1/3 lb ground pork

1/3 lb ground veal
