The best meatballs you will EVER eat…

Ok… Ok… Ok… Admittedly, I’ve been slow rolling with the blog, trying to get something out with consistency but vacations can play havoc with that. Lol. 

We are vacationing in Texas and I am cooking for nine people. With four adults, two teens, four pre teens, and my little two year old, portions ave how much to make is always a concern. 

Yesterday, I made spaghetti and meatballs AND I’m going to share a GREAT meatball recipe. I hope you love it as much as we did.


2 lbs ground meat (80/20)

1 lb ground pork

7 cloves of garlic, minced

3 eggs

3/4 cup of water

Salt and pepper, to taste

2 cups parmesan cheese

1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

(This makes 24 nice sized meatballs so adjust accordingly)

Preheat your oven to 375.

Let’s start with putting your meat in a large bowl. Mix the ground meat, pork, and garlic and develop a well. In that well, add your salt, pepper, eggs, and water.

Add your parmesan on top.

Then your breadcrumbs.

Mix well and form into balls. I use cupcake tins to bake and as you can see, this makes 24 nice sized meatballs.

Into the oven they go for 30 minutes. I flipped them halfway through.once done,  sauce up and enjoy!

Meatballs are really one of my favorite things. If you like them as well, you will LOVE this recipe.

Talk with you all later!

  1. What a cute idea to use a cupcake tin for meatballs – thanks for being so clever! Ever since I got the cupcake/muffin baking machine, I meant to throw the old cupcake tin away, and now I will actually use it, thanks to you.
