Greatest Meatballs Ever!  from willcookforsmiles.com #meatballs #beef #pork
Everyone in my family absolutely loves these meatballs! I use to bring them to work too and make them for parties. Everyone just goes gaga over them. These meatballs always come out so juicy and full of flavor. The secret to a juicy meatballs is the mixture of ground pork and ground beef. 

This is a great comfort meal to serve to your family. Very low effort of your part and takes only about 35-40 minutes! *Remember, you can use leftovers for Meatball Subs for lunch.

Meatballs can be served over pasta, veggies or with mashed potatoes. I decided to make it a little more fun with tri color rotini.
