Yummy Meatballs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by WillowCloud

I got this recipe from my favorite Betty Crocker cookbook, but it never really the same when I make them, I always add whatever herbs & spice hit me at the time of prep. They were originally served with spaghetti, but I started making them for parties and just putting them in a crockpot to keep warm, pouring "spaghetti" sauce over them. (They are also great for meatball subs... just add provalone)

Delish! These were great I did bake mine in the oven because I didn't think they would all fit in the frying pan (and I started dinner late). These were perfect for our subs but delicious on their own. The whole family LOVED them! My DH and DS had second helpings. My 2 year old DD who is a very picky eater ate ALL of them! Thanks so much for posting will be making these again! Made for Spring PAC 2009

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. shape into rounded balls, size depends on use (spaghetti, subs or appetizers)
  3. Cook in a large skillet on medium heat for about 20 minutes, or until completely done.
  4. The recipe calls for 1/4 salad oil to cook meatballs in, but depending on the "grade" of ground beef you may or may not need the oil. Also, I usually put a loose fitting lid on the skillet and I turn the meatballs so that they cook evenly.
  5. You can also make ahead and freeze -- that's the best part, less to do on "party" day.
