Mom's Meatballs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Doozie

Scrumptious meatballs from Mom. Mom never browned them first if she was using in her spaghetti sauce. See her recipe for sauce posted in my recipes, Mom's Spaghetti Sauce. She would drop them in raw and let them simmer for 40 mins. You will have to skim off any excess fat that rises to the top of the sauce if done this way. Or you can saute them first or bake in the oven before adding them to the sauce. No need to skim off any grease if pre-cooked.

These were pretty good. I used Italian crumbs and used garlic powder and some onion powder too. I used 1 egg. Instead of making these in sauce, I baked them for 25 min. at 350 degrees and added them to sauces. I made a double batch and used 2 different sauces. Thanks!
