OK I'm just a guy but I like to cook. I have made a lot of meatballs. These were the best tasting by far. I used 1lb ground round and made 1
I made these for meatball subs and they were fantastic! Many people said the meatballs were a bit mushy. I added an extra 1/8 cup of Parm cheese and were the right consistency. I don't know how many meatballs the recipe made, but there wasn't enough to put in the pot, so the extras are in the freezer waiting for another dish.
These were gross. Maybe the reason is because I cooked them completely in the sauce as the sauce (as stevehet's review mentions). The recipe called for way too many breadcrumbs and they ended up with a chef boyrdee flavor to them. Sorry, but they were bad.
All I can say is WOW! These are delicious!
Just the right amount of seasoning, tender texture.
I used the list of ingredients and then browned these in a skillet. I prefer the flavor that the meat juices impart on a recipe when prepared this way.
I also didn't use them with an Italian style sauce. I made them with a rich mushroom gravy and served them with red potatoes. My hubby loved them so much he mad a glutton of himself and ate until he was absolutely miserable. That's a win in my book!
Delicious and versatile. Thank you so much for the recipe :)
I like the recipe, very basic, I read reviews about how bland it is so i added onions and garlic instead of garlic powder. and read a past review about putting the meat balls in the broiler for 5 minutes, which i did.. and it turned out great... will make again for sure
I don't eat meat and rarely make it, but I made these for my Dad and he enjoyed them. He is the one that gave them a 4 out of 5. I saw another reviewer said you should broil them for a few minutes first to keep them from getting mushy. Mine were pretty soft so I could see where this might help. Overall he seemed very happy with them, so this is where I will come if/when I make them again. Thanks!!
The only thing I did different was to use lean ground turkey instead of beef and had to add a few more bread crumbs to get it to hold it's shape.
I also made the meatballs about 1/2 the size (personal preference) since I have never been a fan of the big kind. The turkey made them much moister than the beef version and it was lower cal as a bonus.
I cooked them in the sauce mentioned with a few minor changes and whole things was a big hit.
My daughter who does not like meatballs tried one and loved it ( cooked in the sauce mentioned in the article ) and then devoured four more during dinner.
Best meatballs i have ever tasted!!!!
I've never made meatballs before, and these were perfect! Everyone loved them and they were super simple to make. I baked mine at 400 for about 20 minutes instead of cooking them in sauce as I was pressed for time, and they were fantastic!
I can't believe i've never rated this recipe or reviewed it because i've been using this recipe for at least 3 years now! It is the best.. i follow recipe exactly. Except for sometimes I brown the my meatballs in the oven for color. Also I always use ground turkey. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
