I made these Italian Inspired Meat Balls especially to satisfy my husband. I had purchased the Italian Sausage reduced, and decided to add the spices that I thought would elevate the flavor of the meat Balls.

To save time I baked them in the oven, they turned out great. I made them much larger than most to appease my husbands healthy hearty appetite. This recipe made 40 delicious meat Balls. One or 2 meat Balls would be enough for the average appetite. But like my husband you may be tempted to eat a lot more. Freeze the extra's to use later or use as Swedish Meat Balls.

How to Make OVEN BAKED HOMEMADE MEATBALLS

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. I used half of this family size ground beef in addition to the Italian Sausage.
  2. These are the spices that i chose to use, but you may use what ever you prefer. I had 4 sliced of bread ends and processed it in the food processor.
  3. Add both Italian and ground beef to a large bowl, then add in the chopped onions & garlic, bread crumbs, eggs, Italian Sausage, and Parmesan cheese, spices and milk.
  4. Blend together, your hands are the best tools to mix this together. May need a bit extra milk if meat Balls are too dry.
  5. Shape into desired size meat Balls then bake in preheated 350 degree F. oven for about 1 hour. Add to pasta sauce or freeze some for later.
