Like I said, the "365" olive oil bottle looks a LOT like Colavita. ;)

Thanks, Carrie! I think I'll make these for Thanksgiving ... maybe use ground turkey! :)

Sorry, Gary, I keep making the mistake of clicking on the reply button below the message instead of beside it. I posted the recipe in another message below. Just wanted to be sure you saw it.

Ahh, you found it apparently. Just saw your reply.

Up until my last grocery store visit, I was exclusively using Colavita at about 50% more $$ than many other brands of EVOO. Then I noticed that the Harris Teeter storebrand bottle was identical in shape and size, so I tried it. I have a feeling it's also Colavita masquerading as the store brand. Wish I would have kept a few drops of the Colavita so I could compare and be certain.

Thank you. Yes, I did. By the way, I agree with you 100% about browning the meatballs. In fact, I always fry mine. (For this recipe I might just bake them.) Ordinarily, I fry them thoroughly when they are not going into the gravy a.k.a. tomato sauce. When they are going into the pot, I leave them very pink inside. And the breadcrumbs are up my alley as well, although I tend to use softened, stale bread as I find breadcrumbs densify meatsballs (can make them golf-ball-like) whereas white, gushy bread makes them soft and moist on the inside. The only downside for some is that there are occasional nodules of bread in the meatball. I kinda like 'em though.
