Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Have baking pans ready to go, I use the disposable ones for easy clean up
  • In a large bowl add meat.
  • Make a well in the middle of the meat mixture
  • Put eggs in the middle of the well
  • Chop garlic finely, put in the well
  • Add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Mix by hand . Try not to over mix
  • Roll into golf ball size balls. If you have teenagers boys roll into softball size balls
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Add the meatballs to your spaghetti sauce and let simmer for 2-3 hours in the sauce to have the flavors blend. The longer they cook, the more tender they are. Some of the flavoring in the bottom of the baking pan can be added to help flavor your sauce.
  • Let extra meatballs cool, and freeze in zip lock bag.

    I love meatballs! I've always fried them- baking would be so much less messy and fatty- I'll have to try it. I have a recipe somewhere for these delicious lamb meatballs (with a bit of Moroccan flavour-)- I'll have to dig it up and post...
    Thanks for this- I'll let you know how I go!

    Thank you for the kind words. These do conjure long lost memories of our 'little Italian grandmas". Mine was an angel (tough as nails), but an angel.
    Yes, but, boy could she cook, sure miss her...hope they turn out well.

    These are excellent and a real keeper. I love baking off a double batch and freezing them to have on hand a all times. Wonderful - thank you! =)

    oh, yes, yes, YESSSS! i can taste them - remembering the 'little old italian lady' in an italian delicatessen on long island who served these to customers. just two 'stand-up-tables'- but what a joy it was. and she gave me her recipe which got lost on one of my many moves. THIS IS JUST LIKE IT. i could hug you out of joy! thank you so much! i shall tell my son - and make these - he still talks about the greatest meatballs of all times! the only problem is getting the hot and sweet sausage - have not yet found a place here which stocks them - but i will try!
