Brandi's Story

My family is big on spaghetti, but we never really did the spaghetti and meatball thing, usually we just chop up sausage links. I had some students make meatballs for a final and it was good. So, I wanted to try and took a Johnsonville recipe and tweaked it. These are AMAZING! They were great with pasta but mind blowing on top of french bread with some sauce and a little Mozzarella!


1/2 lb mild/hot italian sausage
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to broil. Prepare a broiling pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, milk, onion, garlic, and seasoning. Add hamburger and sausage (remove from casings if purchased that way)and mix well.
Shape mixture into 20 meatballs and place on broiling pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.
Serve with your favorite spaghetti sauce, pasta/bread.
