Ingredients

  • 5 1/2 lbs ground beef (a mixture of 1 pound ground beef and 1/2 pound ground pork will work well also)
  • 3 2/3 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 7/8 cups grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs (or use enough to hold the meat together (no dry breadcrumbs? just soak 3 slices of bread in the 1/3 )
  • 3 2/3-7 1/3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic (or use 1 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste)
  • 3 2/3-7 1/3 teaspoons salt (or to taste, I use 2 teaspoons seasoned salt)
  • 3 2/3 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (can use up to 1/2 cup milk)
  • 1 7/8 teaspoons dried oregano (optional, or to taste)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tablespoons dried parsley)

Preparation

Step 1

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
2
Shape into small meatballs (at this point you can place on a jelly-roll/baking sheet and freeze to use later, or cover with plastic wrap refrigerate up to 24 hours before using).
3
Drop the meatballs into simmering pasta sauce, do not stir for at least 20 minutes or you will risk breaking the meatballs.
4
Continue cooking in the simmering sauce for another 20 minutes (depending on how fast your sauce is simmering 40 minutes total should fully cook the meatballs).
5
After the 40 minutes cooking time continue cooking your sauce with the meatballs in for as long as desired.
6
**note** you may also bake the meatballs at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until cooked through
