The Best Meatballs Ever

These are so quick to whip up! I love to double this recipe and freeze one set so when we are really strapped on time I can pop them out of the freezer heat them up and enjoy! I do the same with my Marinara recipe.

These are the Best Meatballs Ever! My family enjoys them on pasta or you can grab some sub rolls and have a tasty sandwich!

To make the best meatballs ever here is what you will need!

Italian Meatballs Recipe

Ingredients:

3 slices of bread cut into small cubes (including crusts)
1 egg
1/4 c. milk
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 c. dried parsley
1/2 T. dried basil
1/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
1lb ground beef, or beef with pork mixture

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl stir the bread, egg and milk to completely combine and let it sit for 15 minutes. Mash up the mixture with a fork to make a smooth paste. Add all of the seasonings and cheese and mix well. Add the beef (or beef and pork mixture) and stir together until completely combined. Form the mixture into balls (about the size of a golf ball) and place on a GREASED baking sheet (for easier handling when forming meatballs, lightly wet hands with water and the mixture won’t stick to your hands).

Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20 minutes, turning over after 10 minutes. Drain the meatballs on a paper towel and place in a large glass bowl. Add 2 cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce and stir just enough to cover meatballs. Cover bowl with paper towel and microwave on medium for five minutes, stir, recover and microwave on low for an additional 20 minutes.
