How to Make Homemade Meatballs

We’re Getting Gorgeous in the Kitchen! Can you feel the heat? There’s one thing all my sons will eat… meatballs. I love meatballs, too. Yesterday afternoon, for some reason… I was just CRAVING them! I need easy, practical and doable recipes. I know fashion backwards and forwards, but when it comes to a dash of this and a dash of that, I’m clueless. But here’s the thing: I don’t want to be clueless. I decided to bring on my mom’s recipe – How to Make Homemade Meatballs!

So yesterday I went for it. And the ONLY reason I didn’t video was because I couldn’t find my video camera! My husband was making me laugh so hard because he asked me what recipe I was going to follow and I said, “Recipe? I was just going to toss spices into the meat. Should I not do that?”

His response was clear… “Audrey, please google for a recipe. You have NO idea what you’re doing.”

So I looked around and grabbed pieces of recipes that I liked and mashed it all together:

  1. Good for you. My wife makes awesome meatballs and sauce. Tip: Make extra sauce and plan another meal like parmesan chicken a couple days later to save sauce prep time and experience two delicious meals! We had spagetti and meatballs Fri night and Chicken Parmesan tonight! Just had to cook the chicken tonight.
