Meatballs for Spaghetti or Sandwiches

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is a simple recipe, but tasty, and with ingredients always on hand. Any leftovers make good sandwiches, or a topping for pizza when sliced up.


  1. Mix spices with breadcrumbs and grated cheese.
  2. Thoroughly combine with remaining ingredients, by hand.
  3. Shape into balls.
  4. Brown in olive oil on all sides, or alternatively, bake in 400 degree oven for approx.
  5. 20 to 30 minutes, till browned but not cooked through.
  6. The meatballs maintain their shape better using the oven method.
  7. Add to spaghetti sauce and simmer for 30 minutes before serving.

I really liked how these turned out! I used half turkey and half beef. I made them a little big but they were a big hit with the kids so we'll make them again!

I thought these were just OK and won't be making them again. I can't imagine I did anything wrong since the recipe is very simple but am baffled after reading other reviews. Sorry.

This was my first time making meatballs and this recipe is a keeper! My husband loved them and requested them again soon. (I also used parmesan instead of romano and added garlic.) LATER: I forgot to mention that I have used turkey in them as well with delicious results!
