Homemade Meatballs ala Nana

Well, as a half Italian, I have to put a recipe in for Meatballs. My Nana Ortenzi showed me how to make these yummy little treasures!

1 1/2 lb meatloaf mix( ground beef, pork and chicken)
2 eggs
1/2 cup grated parmesean cheese
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Oregano
1 Tbsp Fresh parsley minced (can use dried if no fresh available)
1/2 c Italian bread crumbs
1/4 c of milk
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. Pinch off enough of mixture and roll into a ball about  the size of a golf ball.

~ Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1/2 hour. Turn the meatballs over so they cook evenly and are browned another give or take another 1/2 hour.

~In a large skillet, brown the meatballs on all side. Place on paper towels to drain. Put meatballs in spaghetti sauce. simmering 2-3 hours.


~After making meatballs, can drop them directly into fresh homemade spaghetti sauce and simmer 3 hours.

Serve with Spaghetti, a fresh salad and Italian bread!
