    I totally agree with everyone else that has tried this recipe. These meatballs are so tasty and cook up great. Rather than frying the meatballs, I put them under the broiler and they turned out great. This saves on using the oil. - 1/18/09

    These were good. I actually baked them at 375 for about 30 minutes...next time I will add more Italian Seasoning and bake them at 325 instead. I will definitely make them again! - 5/19/09

    I forgo the cheese, replace eggs with Egg Beaters or egg whites and use Flax and Wheat Germ in place of croutons. Baking them or cooking in sauce works just as well and then you don't need the oil. Reduces calories significantly. - 5/13/09

    I added a little hot auce to make them a little more spicy, but this is a great alternative to hamburger meatballs - I will definitely make these again. - 3/5/09

    This was a hit at our house! I browned the meatballs, then put them in the oven at 350F for 15 minutes to cook through. DH wanted to eat them all by themselves, without the marinara sauce, they were so tasty! - 12/6/14
