Tips-How-to-Shape-Perfect-Meatballs

Meatballs take time to shape by hand and are rarely consistent in size. Use a small ice cream scoop to make perfectly round meatballs of the same size. Put some of the meatball mixture in one hand and dish up (with your scooper) equal-sized meatballs and drop them on a baking pan. After scooping, smooth them out into round meatballs by gently rolling in your hands. You can lightly wet your hands with water to help keep the meatballs from sticking while you're rolling.
