A Lost Gem: Grandma Betty's Meatballs

Diving into the world of how to best make Italian Meatballs is a dangerous move. Is there any other food subject that might illicit more disagreement? I don't think so. Except maybe in the area of how to make Barbecue.
But this isn't my first time taking this step. You see, this post was originally written in August 2008, but like many of my posts those first few months {ahem, maybe years}, it was a sad excuse of a food blog post in every sense imaginable. Quite frankly, it's downright embarrassing.
I don't have the time to update every sorry post I've ever written, and really I don't want to. They serve as a reminder of how much I've learned since beginning this blog. But, if there's one recipe in my entire arsenal that deserves the most love and attention I can give it, it's my grandmother's meatball recipe.
So - there may be a time when a post here or there gets a facelift, and when the said facelift is significant enough for me to bring it to your attention, I will. Beginning with Grandma Betty's Meatballs. Enjoy!

I find that tomato sauce is also quite controversial. :P But meatballs are by far the "worst" when it comes to everyone having a "best" recipe. Yours really does look awesome! The photos are stunning.
