Top-ranked recipe named "Italian Meatballs"
This is my Moms meatball recipe that never lets me down. People always comment how fantastic they are and restaurants have taken the recipe from me. Try them and I hope you love em as well. They have a great consistency (not hard) and taste wonderful! Follow me on Twitter @ChefBigFatPanda
"Delicious soft meatballs! The first night, we put them on toasted baguettes with fresh mozzarella and marinara for meatball subs. A couple of nights later, we sliced the leftover meatballs and used them instead of pepperoni for our homemade pizza! So good ( I did add salt, pepper, and some Italian seasonings). "- Sarabond
1. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT OIL (half the water) into large bowl and mix WELL by hand
2. Microwave a small piece of mixture to test texture and taste
(Add more water for softer meatballs)
3. Roll meatballs to slightly larger than a golf ball
4. Fry in 1/2 inch olive oil on medium heat turning over as needed. Do not burn.
(will cook more thoroughly in sauce otherwise cook fully through if eating plain)

joannehill-isom 7 months agoSo easy and the only meatball recipe I use now. My family loves them. I double the batch and freeze half for quick dinners.

Valerie411 10 months agoSo good and so easy to make. Cut the recipe in half and I still made enough meatballs for four or five people. Froze half for another dinner.
gg0812 12 months agoMy husband loved them... The only difference is that I baked them in the oven for 30 min at 400?
Lifeimproves 1 year agoGreat recipe! I bake @ 350 for 12-15 minutes instead of fry. Adding salt, a little oregano or chipotle chili powder is a nice option. Cheese was easy to ind at Costco - is a mix of Romano and Parmesan and is good!
