These meatballs are a family recipe, passed down from my Great Grandma. To achieve their full potential they must be simmered in your favorite sauce for as long as possible. I try to at least have them simmer for at least 4 hrs in my sauce.

  • 2 medium yellow onions
  • garlic, lots (thats what the recipe says)
  • 12 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg

Directions
