I was just hoping that my meatballs would impress an Italian palette. Luckily, they received the seal of approval. Here is the recipe I used for them:
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (you can use Italian ones or just season the plain variety)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tbsp flaked or finely chopped parsley
1/2 tbsp flaked or finely chopped basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 400˚F.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Form into balls about 1" - 1 1/2" round.
This will yield about 20 good-sized meatballs.
Put them in an ungreased baking dish.
Bake at 400˚F for 20 - 25 minutes or until the juices run clear.
That is it for the meatballs. From that point on, we just add them to our sauce and let everything simmer together until the pasta is ready. Molto bene!
(These would also be fantastic on sub rolls as meatball sandwiches)!
