2 tbsp. matzo meal

Combine first 6 ingredients and form into small balls.

Combine ketchup and ginger ale in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Drop meatballs into sauce, cover and simmer for 2 hours.

Poster's Notes:
This is an oldie but goodie! Nothing could be easier or better!

Cooking Tips from Norene:
To shape meatballs easily, wet your hands for easier handling.

You can use ground veal, beef, chicken or turkey, or a combination. Recipes can be doubled easily.

When mixing ingredients together for ground meat mixture, don't over mix or meatballs will be tough.

Meatballs freeze beautifully. I like to store them in single serving-size freezer containers. Smaller containers defrost more quickly than larger ones.
