Libbie's Meatballs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

This is a very old recipe for meatballs. I don't know if she used it much as I don't think they ate spaghetti. This recipe was typed; I think it was from her school work.

Delicious meatballs and very easy to make. I used Panko breadcrumbs and added a little milk instead of the water. I baked the meatballs instead of frying them, simmered them in homemade spaghetti sauce for about 45 minutes, and served them with spaghetti, green salad and garlic toast. Yum.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you don't have olive oil use Wesson or Mazola oil and 1 clove garlic chopped real fine if you desire. Water is added in the mixing of ingredients but don't use too much. Salt and pepper to suit yourself.
  2. The secret of making good meat balls is in the way all of these ingredients are mixed.
  3. Mix the ground beef, ground pork, egg, olive oil, breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, onion, salt, pepper, garlic, and water together thoroughly.
  4. Form into meatballs about 2 inches in diameter; fry until well done.
  5. Allow to soak in a simmering sauce for 30 minutes before serving.
