DIRECTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.  Shape mixture into 8 large balls (about the size of a baseball).  Place on a baking sheet and bake for 60 minutes at 350 degrees.  Add to your favorite marinara sauce and serve with pasta.
  • Or make 12 tennis ball sized meatballs and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Or make 24 golf ball sized meatballs and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Or make 48 gumball sized meatballs and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Random Advice: If your raw meatballs are ugly and not perfectly round - they will NOT look any better after you cook them. I was hoping they would magically look perfect after baking - but they don’t -- Still ugly. Shape your meatballs with care. Don’t worry - the sauce will cover them!
  • Line your baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
  • I don’t like to touch raw meat - so I wear two sandwich baggies on my hands when rolling balls since I don’t have plastic kitchen gloves. We also use a potato masher to mix up everything. I know hands work better - but I just won’t touch it. I don’t like other people touching my food either -- just sayin!
  • You can cry a little about your delicious meatballs -- now go and enjoy!
