Homemade Meatballs

Updated: Dec 15, 2019

Easy to fix and baked in the oven - these are the perfect meatballs for your favorite red sauce, or any sauce. Serve with pasta, mashed potatoes or rice. Ground veal is just an option, but it gives the meatballs exceptional flavor. The meatballs are just as delicious using equal portions of ground beef and ground pork.

By: Melinda Keckler, Crinkled Cookbook

3/4 lb ground beef

3/4 lb ground pork

3/4 lb ground veal

1/2 cut chopped flat Italian parsley

1 slice french bread, torn into small pieces, no crust (any white bread works fine)

1 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

1 tsp salt

1 egg plus one egg white

1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 425°. Mix ingredients together, use an ice cream scoop to create equal-sized meatballs. Place on parchment lined pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until browned and sizzling. Serve in pasta bowls and enjoy the rave reviews. (paid link, Amazon Associates)
