Tuscan Meatballs

Tuscan Meatballs

These are a break from the regular red gravy meatballs and have a more savory taste with the use of mushrooms and brown gravy. These are more likely to be served as an appetizer with toothpicks, as they are half the size of normal meatballs. Make a plate, pour some gravy over the top, add some toothpicks and you have a perfect cocktail party appetizer.
