Author Notes

This recipe is my mother's which she would make with ground venison whenever my dad would kill a deer hunting. Since this rarely occurred she turned to ground beef. Makes for great Hors d'œuvres. Tip: Brown one meatball as a tester. May have to add more ketchup, wine and oregano to taste and quantity of sauce you prefer. Enjoy! —mrwaz
