    Amber W.'s Note:

    I was raised in an Italian family and have searched and searched for the perfect recipe for meatballs and finally found it. The secret to this is the red pepper flakes!

      Fantastic, simple, spicy meatballs :) These were delicious and incredibly easy to make. I also made small meatballs and baked at 375* for 18 minutes. They came out perfectly. I had 2 3/4 lbs of sirloin. Even though that wasn't perfectly twice the amount of meat, I doubled all the ingredients [probably tripled the garlic, actually... ;)]. I used regular breadcrumbs, since I don't really keep Italian on hand and like to season my own breadcrumbs.

      I just pulled these out of the oven and took a big bite!!! They are SO good, and unfortunately, I did not have the ground sirloin, I used ground round, and I did not have fresh parsley so I used dry. I could not imagine how much better these would taste with all the proper ingredients! Next time I will make it EXACT!! (I looked this recipe up at the last second and used what I had!) Also, I wasn't sure what temperature to set the oven on, so I did 375* for 18 minutes and they were perfect! Thanks so much for sharing this!! My family loves them, we can't wait until the spaghetti is done...there won't be any left by then! lol
