Old Style Sunday Meatballs

"Another old time favorite. I don't measure so these are approximate. Adjust to taste. The only things I measure are the cheese and breadcrumbs. Try with my marinara sauce."

  1. Delicious!!!!
  2. I made these with all beef no pork. They were very simple & easy to make. I love the idea of baking them in the oven. Made for PAC Fall 09
  3. Oh, my, how do I even describe how good these were?? I hadn't even put them in the oven, and they were filling my kitchen with their savory smell. My kids were going crazy waiting for dinner! I served them with your scrumptious marinara sauce and they were fabulous! These were easy and wonderful, thanks so much!
  4. These meatballs were delicious Joe! My family and I really enjoyed them. This was the first time I baked meatballs and I sure picked the right recipe, I will absolutely be making these again. The measurements are perfect in my opinion, I would not change anything. Thanks for posting!

<p>I've lived in NYC my whole life. Was born in VA and the family moved back to NYC when I was a week old, so I consider myself a native New Yorker. Dad's family is Sicilian so alot of my recipes revolve around tomotoes. Mom is german/russian jewish and is a fantastic cook in her own right. Has even taken some of dads family recipes and improved on them. My wife is also Italian and we enjoy cooking and baking together and look foward to showing our 2 children how to cook too!!<img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg" alt="" /></p>
