    Mix all ingredients. Don’t add all of the water at one time. Mixture should be moist but not so that the meatballs fall apart.

    Shape meatballs to desired size and place on a broiler pan (wet hands before shaping). Broil until outside is slightly brown on one side and then turn and broil on the other side. When finished, add to the spaghetti sauce and simmer at least 20 minutes.
