Recipe Ingredients for Meatballs

1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
6 cloves minced garlic
1 red onion, med dice
1 oz. chopped fresh Italian Parsley
3/4 tbs salt
3/4 tbs black pepper

Recipe Directions for Meatballs

  1. In a sauté pan, coat bottom of pan with olive oil, canola may be substituted. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown. Add onion and cook until translucent and soft.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, ground sausage, mix in cooked garlic and onions, break eggs in separate bowl so you can be sure there is no broken shell being added. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until even throughout.

  3. Use a 2-3 oz. ice cream scoop to portion out meatball mixture and then roll them. Keep a cup of water near, wetting the hands will make rolling smoother. Place meatballs side by side in a shallow cookie sheet or aluminum metal tray.

  4. Cook at 350° - 375° for 30 - 45 minutes. Adjust temperature for higher altitude. Your oven may cook them slower or faster, keep an eye on them. Usually if there is a brown crust on them, they are ready. Remove from oven and allow to cool 20 - 30 minutes.
