This is an easy recipe for homemade meatballs. These are great subs or spaghetti and meatballs are a great make ahead freezer meal.
My youngest loves for me to make homemade meatballs. She tells me they are the best. Though she probably has only ever ate mine. Anyway, I have two Italian sisters-in-law so I better make good meatballs right?
A person told me a long time ago the secret to good meatballs is parmesan cheese. You have to add a generous amount and it makes for tasty moist meatballs. Here is my recipe for the best homemade meatballs.
For one batch of meatballs I use the 20oz. package of ground turkey. Double or triple like I do and freeze some.
16oz - 20oz Ground turkey, beef or whatever you prefer
1/2 c. - 1 c. bread crumbs
1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
(Finely minced onion and garlic) optional. I do not eat either of these so our meatballs are made without but add if you like. Acid reflux diet over here.
Mix well. I use my hands. Form into small meatballs and either pan fry in some olive oil or cook on a cookie sheet in the oven until browned at 350. Don't overcook. I then place them in the pan of sauce to finish cooking while the sauce is simmering.
