[MUSIC] It's easy to avoid tough meatballs. All you need is a tiny ice cream scoop. Scoop the meat mixture in the palm of your hands. If the meat is sticking, keep a small dish of water nearby to wet your hands. Place the meatballs on a foil lined baking sheet, and brown them off in the oven according to the recipe directions. This way, they'll hold their shape and the sauce of your choice. For more test kitchen tips, visit Southernliving.com.
