This meatball recipe comes from Trisha Yearwood. These are great for barbecue sauce, marinara sauce, or even right off the plate.
2 pounds lean ground beef
8 ounces ground pork
2 cups Italian flavored breadcrumbs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
4 medium eggs, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, minced
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl or mixer, thoroughly mix the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, milk, parsley, eggs, garlic, onion, and some salt and pepper. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Shape into meatballs and place on a foil-lined shallow baking pan. Bake 30 minutes for medium or 25 minutes for bite-size. Put into any sauce, or serve with tooth picks inside and set them out for appetizers at a party.
This is a simple recipe for any event or even a quick fix for dinner. It's also a fun recipe for you to make with any little ones.
