Recipe by Steph KP

Easy meatballs, baked in the oven with sauce. Perfect for meatball sandwiches or spaghetti and meatballs. These are really basic, you can spice yours up by adding parmesan cheese or red pepper flakes to the mix, you can stuff a cube of mozzarella inside the meatballs... When I have red wine in the house, I also drizzle a cup of red wine over the meatballs and sauce before baking! Feel free to adjust as you like!
