Since Nick is Italian, he really likes to eat an Italian meal at least once a week.

For years, I’ve made the “secret” family recipe for Sunday Spaghetti Sauce to serve with pasta, but recently he decided he wanted meatballs with it.

Honestly, I tried to take the easy way out and buy pre-made Meatballs, but after trying several different varieties, the guys just couldn’t find any they were happy with.

I have a recipe for Homemade Meatballs, but I just hadn’t ever made them.

When they weren’t happy with the premade meatballs, I made the ultimate mistake and tried my Homemade Meatballs Recipe.

Homemade Meatballs

Why is that a mistake?

Because they LOVED them, and now they aren’t happy with just plain old spaghetti sauce and pasta, they want Homemade Meatballs EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.

They also want them for Meatball Sandwiches on Sub Rolls, Meatball Sliders, and just to eat as a snack.

Fortunately, the recipe is pretty easy to make.

I bake mine in the oven instead of frying them, and try to make a double or triple batch every time, so I can freeze the extras, and I don’t have to make them once a week 🙂
