Mom's Italian Meatballs

These were adapted from my grandma's recipe. My grandma, mom, aunt and I still make them at least once a month. Combine with my semi-homemade spaghetti sauce and your favorite pasta for a meal the whole family will love. My 2 year old son eats four meatballs at a time!

  • 1 - 1 1/4

    lb. ground beef or combination of beef and pork

    c. Italian style bread crumbs

    c. evaporated milk or half and half

Directions

Mix all ingredients together by hand in a medium bowl. Form into golf ball sized balls. There are several methods to cooking the meatballs. Each person in my family does it differently. Mom's way: Brown lightly on all sides in non-stick skillet sprayed with cooking spray. Drop into simmering sauce, cover with lid and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes. Aunt Nancy's way: Drop raw meatballs into simmering sauce, cover with lid and simmer gently for 45-60 minutes. Andrea's way: Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Drop into simmering sauce, cover with lid and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes
