Spaghetti and meatballs are a favorite for our Sunday family dinners. These are easy to make and taste much better than the frozen ones! These are baked, not fried so they take a bit longer but are well worth it! I don't use any eggs as a binder, the milk and bread crumbs work just fine. If you prefer, you can add an egg too.
1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X13 pan well, set aside. Wash your hands- you will be using them as your mixing tool!
2In large bowl combine ground beef and sausage. Mix them together with your fingers, to blend well.
3Add spices and other ingredients and blend them in with your hands to make sure everything is mixed in well.
4Form into small meatballs (I do them about 2 inches). Place in the greased pan. They can touch but don't crowd them too much. Once you have all the meat rolled into balls, add 2 T water to the pan. Salt and pepper the meatballs again. Cover pan tightly with foil.
5Bake at 350 degrees F for one hour. Once done, let them rest for 15-30 minutes. Remove from pan and add to your sauce or serve on the side with pasta!
