Great recipe. Followed it but omitted the cinnamon and added a little salt. Recommend using the pork. Took these as a appetizer to a card game and they were devoured. Everyone wanted the recipe. Served it with a traditional cocktail meatball sauce instead of marinara. Meatballs were super tasty on their own though. I will definitely make these again.

I used the pork. I got 20 meatballs out of the recipe. It turned excellent; very moist. Not dry at all. I did add basil. I would allow more prep time than called for in the recipe.

These were amazing!! I expected them to be ok, but the spices were fantastic. I did include the salt, but the cayenne an the pork were the real stars. I would definitely make this again.

I substituted ground beef for pork, but followed the recipe otherwise. The mix was really wet prior to baking, but they baked up just fine, with a nice, savory flavor.

I followed another review and cooked with ground beef rather than the pork (although I will try pork next time). Beef was good, definitely lacked some flavor. Could have used basil, maybe more garlic, and some parmesan cheese thrown in the mixture. I also will make without the cinnamon next time. Even just a little bit went too long a way.

Meatballs were very dry. Flavor was not pleasing either....not sure why. The spice combination plus the dense texture did not appeal.
