I have been making these meatballs since I was a little girl, I was raised in NYC, I'm Italian, I recently had a fundraiser and I sold over 400 meatballs in one day!!! These are delish, I would love to share it with you.

Excellent! I used ground turkey (since that was all I had) and a large heel from a loaf of sourdough bread. Oh my goodness.....delicious. And my red meat loving husband grunted and gave it two sauce covered thumbs up.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put ground beef in large bowl,
  2. Add the egg and the bread crumbs.
  3. Sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, salt/pepper, there is no measuring for that, just sprinkle.
  4. Mix meat mixture with clean hands.
  5. Add about 1/4 cup water. The meat mixture will be soft.
  6. In a large cooking pot, put sauce, start heating up the sauce, have it set on medium.
  7. Now take about 2 tablespoons of meat and gently roll in ball, gently put each meatball in the sauce, (yes it will be raw) do not fry the meat balls before the sauce).
  8. Do this until all the meatballs are in the sauce, cook for 1- 3 hours max. The longer the better. Delish!
