Italian Meatballs

by Laura

Today’s recipe is another yummy one I sampled while in Wisconsin.  I have never made meatballs made from sausage before.    These were absolutely delicious!  They were moist and flavorful.  You could use them in any recipe that calls for fully cooked meatballs.  Just make this recipe  and skip step #7 and allow the meatballs to cool on a cooling rack or on a dish lined with paper towels.  Once cooled, just place them in a freezer bag and freeze until ready to use.
I also have a giveaway starting today.  It is well worth stopping by my giveaway page to enter!

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, milk and onion.

I agree with Frieda. Baked meatballs are much easier to cook than skillet cooking. As a single dad, I like to make a big batch and with the remaining leftovers, freeze them so they are quick and easy to heat up in the microwave at a later time. And the kids always love them 🙂

This is a great recipe for meatballs. I followed your recipe the other night when cooking and the kids loved them! It’s the little things like the Parmesan cheese that make the difference I think. Thank you for sharing a simple but very tasty recipe for meatballs.

Baked meatballs are SO much easier than skillet cooking them! I also like to make a huge batch, cool and freeze them. Reheat in the microwave for 3 minutes and use as an appetizer, in a meatball sub or with our favorite spaghetti and sauce.
