If you've never had homemade Italian meatballs, then NOW is the time to try making them! It's so easy to do, and they are so delicious! Be sure to make these along with a homemade batch of Classic Italian Marinara Sauce. It's the best of both worlds, and you'll save time cooking in bulk, so you can freeze and consume later at your leisure! The marinara recipe was passed down through at least 4 generations of Italians, so you know it's good! Be sure to check out our Homemade Italian Marinara Sauce Recipe - it's a great combination!

Directions

1Gather your ingredients.

ingredients for meatballs

2In a bowl, combine the two meats and knead together until mixed well. Into the bowl, crack open the two eggs, then add 1 cup of breadcrumbs, diced onions, 1/3 cup of grated Romano Cheese, Oregano, Red Pepper Flakes, Salt, and Pepper.

3Make sure to use freshly ground black pepper, you will get a flavor that is FAR superior to dried up pre-ground black pepper.

4Thoroughly mix by kneading the mixture together with your hands.

5Using your hands, proceed to shape your meatballs. I like somewhere in the middle of golf ball and baseball sized meatballs.

6Look at this stack of meatballs! They will be tasting REAL good in a little while!

7Add meatballs to the marinara sauce.

8One by one, dunk the meatballs under the marinara sauce. Simmer for at least 45 minutes. Be sure to check the center of your biggest meatball before considering them done.
