  • If you are craving for cheesy meatballs all you have to do is add some cheese into the centre of the meatballs.
  • Do not cover the meatballs.
  • You can substitute the ground beef with the ground chicken or turkey (If you are using ground chicken, decrease milk to 2 tablespoons).
  • If you made them in two sizes you can use them as appetizers and entreé.
  • If you are adding parsley, make sure to include the upper half of the parsley stems when chopping. Because the stem is the softest part of the herbs. Those are completely edible and has a great flavour too.
  • Need to be extra careful when mixing the meatballs. Do not over-mix the meat. If you overmix the meat it will lose the consistency and fall-apart and will not make a beautiful meatball. Use your hands to control the mixing.
