baked cocktail meatballs

The secret is in the spices! These baked appetizer meatballs are packed with flavor. They are so juicy and good, you won’t miss the deep frying – and there’s also no need to simmer them in sauce. I usually serve these tasty little snacks with a small bowl of Dijon mustard for dipping.
