Baked Meatballs

Baked Meatballs

Cook these meatballs on a broiler pan so the grease drips below and all that is left is a lean, delicious meatball!  Tip from my sister:  line the bottom of the broiler pan with foil.  Clean-up will be a snap! Leftovers make great meatball sandwiches, use pretzel rolls to really elevate the dish with mozzarella melted on top under the broiler.
