Beef Balls

Beware; these beef balls will make you go insane…

Basketball, Volleyball, golf ball and beef balls are lined up in front of you, which one will you pick??? I can hear the unanimous screaming from all of you “Beef balls, beef balls, beef ballsss…

When the beef balls came out of the oven well done and browned, my husband who was calm and humble until that time, transformed into a selfish and greedy being. For the first time, he couldn’t wait till the beef balls got a neat presentation and did few posing in front of the camera. He begged me and bugged me like crazy for these beef balls. Can’t blame him, it’s the beef balls that made him insane. Finally, I was forced to throw few beef balls into his mouth just to make him shut. In just seconds he finished it and sneaked into the kitchen to gobble up other beef balls too. Gosh, what’s the matter with this man? I screamed. And I had to wind up the photo session real fast.

This recipe is adapted from Rachael Ray. These are the same meat balls, which are used for making the popular “Spaghetti and meat balls”. I ignored the spaghetti and just made the meatballs. This could be served as a finger food or as an appetizer, either way there will be a high demand for this and will vanish from the platter in just a matter of seconds.
