What an incredible idea! Have you ever pre-cooked them then warmed them back up? We have a huge holiday party for about 150 clients and friends every year and I'm always looking for recipes for that...

Love seeing you fry your meatballs, we have always made them that way, I think they taste better than baked. I love the yogurt and mint dip idea!
