One of my favorite things about this recipe is the way you make the meatballs. Using a muffin tin to bake them in saves on a lot of cleanup time. It’s also an easy way to keep all of the meatballs separate for better, even cooking.

Ingredients for homemade Italian meatballs

Now that you have all of your ingredients together let’s make some meatballs. See below for my step-by-step instructions on how to make the best meatballs ever.

How do I make Meatballs?

Step 1:  Heat the oven to 350.

Step 2:  In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add each of your ingredients into the bowl and mix well after each addition. I find it best to use my hands versus a spoon.

Step 3:  Make slightly more substantial than golf ball sized meatballs and place them into a Muffin pan like this one.

 Place a coat of non-stick cooking spray. (Make sure not to overpack meatballs as you want them to cook evenly and all the way through.)

Step 4:  Place in the oven and cook for 30 minutes, flipping them when you are halfway through.

Serve with noodles and sauce for meatballs and spaghetti, or on a hoagie for a meatball sub. We also like to double the recipe and freeze leftovers for future meals.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs KETO – use panko or almond flour
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350

  • Add meat, breadcrumbs (or Keto substitute), eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, and cheese to a medium bowl. Mix well. 

  • Make larger than golf ball sized balls and keep them loosely packed. Toss them back and forth in your hands to help them form and keep them from packing to tightly.

  • Place in a muffin tin for easier cooking, and turn them 15 minutes in to the 30 minute cook time. 

  • TIP: Replace the breadcrumbs with Panko or Almond Flour to make this recipe KETO friendly. 

Notes

  1. The secret to cooking evenly is by LIGHTLY packing the meatballs. I do this by tossing them back and forth in my hands from left to right, right to left. Don’t pack tightly or they will cook unevenly. 
  2. For easy cleanup, bake the meatballs in a muffin tin. 
  3. For extra flavor, you can also grill these meatballs on the grill before adding them to any spaghetti or favorite dishes. 
  4. Serve with your favorite marinara or serve naked without sauce.
