At the risk of sounding dogmatic, I think that is the right size for an Italian meatball destined for tomato sauce and spagetti/linguini.

Some of the pizza takeouts around here give two meatballs with an order and they're a good bit bigger. I find that size a little disconcerting. Eh, lets be honest: it's very disconcerting. What are they thinking? I think they're being lazy because they don't want to make them the right size and provide three or four.

Meatballs for beef strouganoof and Sweedish meatballs are of course much smaller.

Here's an idea: a meatball press that makes bite sized football shaped meatballs. They would be great for hor dourves at Super Bowl parties. You could sell them on TV infomercials in December and January.

Hi Heat,
That depends on whether or not you pull a little bread out of the roll too. When I make a sub at home, I pull a little bread out to make a pocket that helps hold everything in place.
