Meatballs are one of my favorite go-to crowd pleasers. I make them in the morning and slow cook them in sauce all day for a delicious, perfectly blended meatball. They are great on spaghetti, a sandwich, or alone! I recommend a nice green salad and a baguette with oil for dipping to complete your meal!
1-1.5 pounds of ground beef
1-1.5 pounds of sausage
1 medium onion chopped in fairly small pieces
¼ cup of bread crumbs
¼ cup of grated parmesan cheese
2-3 gloves of garlic, minced
Italian seasoning blend or make your own with oregano and basil
Sauce, lots of sauce! I use 4-6 cups (Homemade or from a jar. Any marinara works!)
Preheat the oven to 350.
Put the raw hamburger and sausage in a large bowl. Add the onion, bread crumbs, grated parmesan, garlic, egg, salt, pepper, and seasoning. Translation- dump everything except the sauce into one large bowl then mix it up. (I love that there is not a ton of dishes to clean after making this meal!) Mix thoroughly with your hands. I actually wear food prep gloves for this part because the feeling on my hands grosses me out!
