Expert Tips

  • Prepare and bake the meatballs up to 24 hours before your party. Cover and refrigerate them. Just before serving, prepare the sauce and heat the meatballs in it.
  • Keep the meatballs warm by serving them in a chafing dish or fondue pot. Provide small forks or cocktail toothpicks for easy eating.
