    Made these and added a couple of finely chopped habaneros for that “spicy meatball” effect. End result were the best meatballs I’ve ever eaten - delicious! The overall preparation time took longer than the recipe indicates, so bank on a further 30 mins or so.

    Never keep a sharp knife next to the chopping board. Instead put it behind it.

    I went to the Cheesecake Factory in Doha, Qatar last night and had the absolute worst spagetti and meatball dish ever made, in the history of this earth. I love to make my own Italian sauces and I decided to look up a great meatball recipe. This seems to be it and I am trying it a bit later today. Unfortunately, no pork here but I will use veal.

    90 minutes at 300 degrees f (equal to 150 degrees c as suggested) is way too long. Came out hard as a rock.

    I just discovered your these bad boys in the fridge...prepping for the next step, I’ve got bread dough rising & homemade pasta hanging up drying getting ready for the pot-this could be a kick ‘arse’ meal if all goes well 🤞🏾(pasta & bread I’m seasoned at, I’ll let you know how these come out)!-I get so bored when it snows & I can’t get out of my neighborhood because the roads are a straight drop down the mountains with no guard rails-all I can do is cook, so thanks for the new ideas!

    Try lightly coating in seasoned bread crumbs before frying. Sauce + breading = incredibly delicious improvement in texture and adhesion of tomato sauce.

    Look good, but don't have half those ingredients and the measurements are not worth the time. Gonna just make them best I can with what I have. :P

    I agree. These are the best meatballs I’ve ever made. I followed this recipe to the letter except the parmesan cheese at the end and they were delicious. Even my kids loved them! Thank you Donal!

    I just made it for a big group! I tasted one already and I have to say your meatballs are better than Ramsay’s that I made a few times already.
