Wordless{ish} Wednesday: That's a good meatball!


{I've invited a few friends and their kids over for an Italian dinner tonight--on the menu is homemade meatballs and baked rigatoni.  I decided to make things easier on myself and made the meatballs last night.  They're super easy to make; you just have to be sure to give them enough time to simmer in the sauce--I recommend 35-40 minutes at the very least.}


{The recipe is my grandmother's; according to my dad, she got it from an old Italian woman in our church years and years ago.  I tested them out on Captain Husband, who promptly informed me that they were just as good, if not better, than the ones his grandmother makes.  If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!}

Oh, I love meatballs! These look fantastic!! I wish I could make them, but no one in my house eats meatballs. :(

My mom, who is italian, says that the secret to a great meatball is to use two types of meat. She usually uses a 1/2 lb of ground beef and a 1/2 lb of ground pork. Other than that, she uses pretty much the same recipe! :)

I love meatballs, but Hubby doesn't like to eat much red meat, so I make them with ground turkey... not the same, but still decent.

mmmmm meatballs (said in my best Homer Simpson impression)
p.s. good call on listing the Olive Oil separately from the actual ingredients :)

Yummy! That's pretty much the same as my Italian grandmother's meatball recipe :)
