These turned out great, except I used 3 different kinds of meat, not 2, and added a 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs since it seemed a bit too moist. But the WholeFamily wolfed this down - all four kids of discerning tastes - plus my husband!! And there are 3 meatballs left - just enough for a sandwich.

These are so delicious! I make them quite often and have served them to many guests with the simple spaghetti and tomato sauce recipe. Everyone commented on how tasty they were. The zest and cilantro make them a hit!
