This recipe makes the most tender and tasty meatballs. I also freeze these meatballs and take out how many servings I need for each meal. If cooking in sauce, add baked meatballs 20 minutes before serving time.

My teenager and I loved these meatballs! I used dried parsley in place of fresh and added some pork as other reviewers have suggested. The Italian bread crumbs and spices add a nice flavor, plus I splurged on fresh Romano, yum. Bonus for us is no "icky bits"--i.e., little pieces of onion or pepper that my son's persnickety palate rejects. We didn't even add sauce or manage to get them onto rolls for sandwiches, just ate them straight from the oven. 10/10 will make again! Read More

I Didn’t use eggs or water.... I added a splash of Worcestershire sauce and they were really good. I’ve made meatballs way “fancier”and my family loves these they can eat them without any sauce. Read More

This was awesome with a few tweaks. I added 1 heaping teaspoon each of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. I just eyeballed a big shake of black pepper in. Also, used panko instead of seasoned breadcrumbs. Read More
