Helen's Homemade Meatballs

Submitted by: LANC92

Introduction

This is my own recipe for meatballs that I use in my spaghetti sauce! Also delicious as a base for sweet & sour meatballs, etc. Baking them in the oven prior to adding to sauce bakes off any excess fats.

    I used this as a base, minus the milk and plus a few extra spices as I was feeling creative, very tasty. - 4/30/08

    I used plain bread crumbs by mistake and the meatballs were a little bland. Next time I'll add more spices. - 11/20/07

    My husband and I loved this as an alternative to meat sauce with our spaghetti. I can't wait to try maranating them in some kind of sweet sauce to serve as an appetizer. Very easy to make! - 11/8/07

  • I made these tonight for diner. I did add a chopped green pepper and a chopped onion into the mixture. They turned out very well. On their own they were a little bland, however in the sauce they were great! This is a wonderful meatball base to start with and the cook can tweak to his/her liking. - 7/24/11
