"HOLY MOLY!!! These are the best meatballs ever!! I have been looking for a recipe for these for a long time. Everywhere you go the meatballs have no favor and are just hard little balls. These were so easy. Full of favor. The hubby is SOOO picky. He loved them. Can't wait to make these again!!!"- 2LilAngels

Saute your onions until fairly translucent. Set aside to cool.
Get all your spices and garlic, etc. measured out and set aside before continuing. (eggs, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, cayenne, parmesan, olive oil, bread crumbs, milk, and dried italian herbs)
Once that is set, add a 1/2 cup milk to 1/3 cup bread crumbs: stir it a bit and then let stand for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, combine meats together. Then add your milk/breadcrumb mixture, eggs, parsely, onions, garlic, parmesan, and any other remaining ingredients; mix it all together.....but don't overmix. Once it's all combined and mixed, cover with saran wrap and chill in refridgerator for 1 hour (doing this will make it easier to portion out the meatballs).
An ice cream scoop is recommended for making the meatballs (if you don't have a scoop, then have some cold water in a bowl, and dip your fingers into it before you use your hand to make the meatballs). They should be about golf ball size. Lightly oil a standard 1/2 sheet baking pan (for easier clean up, line with tin foil and lightly oil that instead). If you size these out correctly....you should get exactly 30 meatballs on the sheet (6 rows of 5). Cook at around 425-450 degrees for 20 minutes or until the meatballs have started to brown nicely. Add these to your favorite marinara sauce, then simmer on low heat for desired amount of time (for some....15 minutes is long enough).
These can be frozen and pulled out as you like later on.
should make about 30 meatballs

Epianolady 8 months agoThese are delicious and the recipe is super easy to follow. Great served with baked ziti.
Pjsflores 8 months agoI didn't see an amount for the breadcrumbs, so I added 3/4 cup, might have been too much. Next time, I'll try 1/2 cup, but I'll definitely make these again.

EmptyMelon 1 year agoNever made meatballs before. This recipe made it seem like I grew up making these. So delicious!
Thekidsmom1224 1 year agoVery yummy. My picky family was happy. I used the four garlic cloves and dry parsley instead of fresh b/c that's all I had. Pulled out of oven and thee in pot of spaghetti sauce for 20 min or so.
