Starr's Savory Meatballs

I came up with these savory meatballs after experimenting with several different recipes, including my mother's. I like to use these in spaghetti sauce, of course, but they're also delicious in my meatball subs. You can double or triple the recipe; you can also freeze them — the sky is the limit!
