In a bowl mix fennel mixture with the rest of the ingredients. With your hands mix up the mixture and make into balls. Add to a non stick 13X9 pan.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, can also stir fry them, but this is lower fat.

Best if added to a spaghetti sauce. Even better if you cook in sauce for at least 20 minutes to make them extra moist.

Makes about 8 large meatballs or 16 small.
