  4. Mix all the ingredients together and with your hands create small balls to fit inside mini muffin pan.
  5. Before placing meatballs into pan, roll each one lightly in breadcrumbs. (Can sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if you prefer, but the breadcrumbs give the meatball that crunchy, but juicy bite.)
  6. Then place each meatball into mini muffin pan.

  8. Serve with pasta sauce (we love Ragu) and your favorite spaghetti noodles (we use gluten free!)
