    Excellent. Everyone loved. I baked these on a broiler pan so any fat could drain away. - 5/31/11

    These are really good. I love that each meatball is a serving because it makes tracking easy. I used flax foccaccia that I baked for the crumbs (I have to be gluten free) and they turned out great. After baking, I popped them in a jarred spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker. Everyone loved them! - 2/15/12

    You might want to mention either breadcrumbs or bran earlier, like in the ingredients list. Thats my only complaint, these meatballs can easily beat our favorite italian restaurants meatballs. INCREDIBLE!!! - 12/20/10
