Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid Favorite! I made these for our family of 5 and everyone loved them. We just ate them as meatballs and didn't use the lettuce cups. They'll taste great either way. This was a quick and easy recipe that we will definitely have again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good! These were SO good, and so easy to make! I honestly put them off until the last day before I would've needed to either freeze the meat or throw it out (I'm not a big fan of cooking), but these were so easy to make I didn't end up minding the process at all! I'll definitely make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way for kids to get GREENS I can never get my children to eat greens, so when I whip up this batch of meatballs and dunk them down inside some lettuce and drizzle some ranch on top, they NEVER question it!
