I made these the other night and they were a huge success. I put them in the marinara sauce, served over spaghetti. However, I am anxious to do toasted,garlic bread hard rolls for meatball sandwiches. They were delicious, and made somewhat larger to accomodate the mozzerella inside of them. Yummy! A real man-pleaser, as my sons were especially delighted, but even my daughters and I really enjoyed them!

How to Make Italian Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Place evaporated milk in a pyrex cup, or small bowl. Break bread into small pieces and put to soak in the milk. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side up, and vegetable spray (I prefer Olive Oil). Chop up a 1/2 a pound block of Mozzerella cheese and set aside into 1/2 inch cubes. Grate the remainder of the cheese and set aside.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil, shiny side up, and vegetable spray (I prefer Olive Oil). Chop up a 1 pound block of Mozzerella cheese into 1/2 inch cubes. Using your hands, ocmbine all of the ingredients in a large enough bowl.
  3. Form meat mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls, inserting a cube of cheese, pulling the meat around it, to encase it inside of the meatball.
  4. Place meatballs, not touching on the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes. While baking, make and heat up the marinara sauce (may use prepared sauce); and keep it warm.
  5. Spread butter on (garlic and parmesan cheese stirred into butter-to taste). Fry rolls on a grill or griddle. Load up rolls with meatballs, top with marinara sauce and grated mozzerella. Enjoy!!
