I have many fond memories of making these meat balls with my father as a child. A great big mess and a lot of fun.

How to Make Daddy's Sunday Night Meat Balls

Step-by-Step

  • 1Method:

    1-Heat your tomato sauce in preparation to making meat balls. Use your own favorite sauce recipe, your favorite canned/jarred brand or try my marinara recipe.

    2-In a large skillet add your olive oil over medium heat.

    3-In a large mixing bowl mix up all the rest of the ingredients until completely incorporated.

    4-Roll your out meat balls from your mixture. Meat balls should be about inch and a half balls.

    5-Once oil in pan is at smoking temperature, lay your balls out in the pan. Brown on one side and rotate. Keep rotating until all sides are browned.

    6-At this point the balls are only about 3/4 the way cooked. Pour your hot pasta sauce over your balls and cook covered for 5-10 minutes until you are ready to serve.





    And there it is.... my best recipe for meat balls. I served it over tri-colored pasta and garnished with some parm.
