Tags: , ,

My Classic Homemade Meatballs are perfect for parties or in a big bowl of spaghetti.
Classic Homemade Meatballs

My Classic Homemade Meatballs are one of my favorite things….ever.  When I have a little time on my hands, I love hand rolling each meatball, browning them and simmering in pasta sauce.  The house smells fantastic too!  You’re going to love my recipe, be sure to give it a try!

Prepare The Meatballs

Classic Homemade Meatballs

Start by adding your seasoning to the ground beef.  I prefer the grass fed lean ground beef.

I like to use a medium cookie scoop to make even meatballs.  It’s about 2 tablespoons each meatball.

Roll Into Meatballs

Roll each meatball into tight rounds.

Brown All Sides of Meatballs

Brown in hot olive oil browning both sides until cooked through.

When done, transfer meatballs to a plate, wipe most of oil out of pan and add pasta sauce.  My 10 Minute Homemade Pasta Sauce works great.

Add Meatballs To Pasta Sauce

These are great eaten as an appetizer or with spaghetti…or even for meatball hoagies.

I highly suggest making a double batch, these babies go fast!  You can freeze them for another dinner as well.  They freeze great.

Tips For my Classic Homemade Meatballs

  • Don’t over mix meat mixture.  Over mixing makes “tough” meatballs.  Stir until just combined.
  • Make sure pan is nice and hot before adding raw meatballs.  A hot pan will ensure you get nice browned edges.
  • Let meatballs simmer in pasta sauce for a few hours for an even more tasty result.
  • Add meatballs to any of your favorite variety of cooked pasta.
  • Make a double batch of the recipe.  Freeze second batch in an airtight container to use for another dinner.
  • These meatballs make excellent Meatball Hogies for another dinner idea.
