  Re: meatballs by fiesta313 (Can anyone help me f...)
first of all welcome to C@H forum!! Secondly, someone might come by with a recipe for something called 'famouse meatballs', but I sure don't know what ones you're referring to. Can you give a few more hints on what you're looking for?

Also, dinner type meatballs? or appetizer meatballs....

Thanks Roxanne! I was also wondering which meatball recipe it was in the previous thread, but got distracted and forgot to ask.
