DH and I have two favorite meatball recipes, this one and meatballs in a mexican-style soup. I like these in sandwiches; he likes them in tortillas. Sometimes I just make the sauce for pasta. This is also a good recipe to double and freeze.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Make meatballs:.
  3. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with hands (or a wooden spoon if you must, but using your hands works better and is much more fun!) Form into medium-large balls (I usually get 15), and place in a 13x9 baking dish. Bake until browned, 15 minutes. Drain excess fat from dish.
  4. While meatballs are baking, make sauce:.
  5. Combine sauce ingredients in blender and process to a smooth puree.
  6. Pour sauce over browned meatballs and return to oven for another 20 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened. We like the sauce nice and thick, but if you prefer a thinner sauce, add a little chicken or beef broth to it.
