Easy to fix and baked in the oven - these are the perfect meatballs for your favorite red sauce, or any sauce. Serve with pasta, mashed potatoes or rice. Ground veal is just an option, but it gives the meatballs exceptional flavor. The meatballs are just as delicious using equal portions of ground beef and ground pork.
