I grew up on these meatballs. My dad use to make them all the time and now I do for my family and friends and everyone loves them. We make a lot so we can have spaghetti one night and the meatball subs the next! To be honest I made the measurements as best I could but it goes by your own judgment. Once the eggs and bread crumbs are mixed you just shake the spices over the meat to cover evenly.

  1. Place the ground beef ( 7% fat is best ) in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Then place eggs and bread crumbs in and mix well with your hands.
  4. Then put in all spices. The best thing to do is sprinkle them over the mixture evenly. I made the measurements the best I could, but I have never really measured before. I only went by my own judgment.
  5. Using a broiling pan so that the grease drips down inside of it, roll your meatballs according to size.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes, turning the meatballs half way through.
