homemade Italian meatballs
Most everyone in my family loves meatball subs. The main ingredient is the subs are delicious Italian meatballs. They are pretty easy to make ahead and then freeze for use later. Here’s how we make them.
You will want to have a cookie sheet with edges and if possible a rack that fits into the cookie sheet to place on top of it. We lined the cookie sheet with aluminum foil with edges for easy clean up. If you do not have a rack, cook them without it.
We’ve made a video as well if you’d like to view.
1 lb lean hamburger
1/2 lb ground Italian sausage
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried minced onions
2 teaspoons garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons dried parsley
1-2 Tablespoons of water (if needed)
how to make Italian meatballs
Preheat oven 400F.
In a bowl add the beef and ground sausage.
Add all the ingredients but the water and mix.
If the ingredients are dry, add the water a tablespoon at a time.
Mix until everything is incorporated.
Make 1 1/2 inch balls.
Place the meatballs onto the rack so that they all fit, but are not touching.
Place in the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven.
You can serve these in your spaghetti, chop up and use them in lasagna. They are great to freeze and serve in a crockpot or in an Italian meatball sandwich.
