*Though I don’t use sherry often, I keep it on hand for use in the occasional recipe. It has the potential to add great flavor, and a bottle will keep for years stored in a cool, dark place. Make sure to purchase a bottle labeled “dry,” and while you want something that’s good enough to drink (even if you don’t drink it plain), you need not spend a fortune.
What size meatballs to make? If serving the meatballs with toothpicks as a passed appetizer or as a part of a buffet, I recommend the smaller size. If you’d like to offer guests something heartier and will be serving with plates and forks, the larger size may be preferred.
