Starr's Savory Meatballs

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"This is my version of meatballs based on experimentation from several different recipes, including my mother's. I like to use these in spaghetti sauce, of course, but they're also delicious in my meatball subs. You can double or triple the recipe - sky's the limit! - and freeze."

Out of dry bread crumbs at the moment, I used crushed garlic croutons instead. I made no other changes. GREAT meatballs. Excellent for meatball sandwiches.

These were good, but a bit bland. Next time I might try 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of ground sausage. I also used a 2" ice cream scoop to divide the beef.

I made these for a Christmas party and they were delicious! I added a half pound of sausage because I had some to use up. These will be my go-to homemade meatball from now on! Thanks Superstarr!
