Baked Beef and Pork Meatballs
Robinm48 says:

There can't be 8 servings of 4 meatballs if you only divide the recipe into 24 meatballs. 8 x 4 = 32, not 24. It's either 6 servings of 4, or 8 servings of 3. Dietitian comment: Thanks for calling this to our attention. The correct serving is 3 meatballs for 8 portions.

Just made these this week and my family loved them. I followed the instruction as is, served them with spaghetti noodles and salad. I will definitely make these again!
