When I was a kid I would not touch a meatball sandwich. If you like really plain and boring meatballs then this is not for you. These meatball are loaded with flavor. This recipe makes a ton of meatballs. You can freeze them. I only cooked a 1/3 of them. This is a great recipe for parties because it is easy to keep warm. Just add the cheese on the bottom and it will melt.
