Directions

Mealthy Tip

For tender, juicy meatballs, don't opt for extra-lean ground beef—a little bit of fat adds flavor and moisture. 85 to 90% lean would be ideal. For a healthier take, use ground turkey instead of beef. Alternatively, use half ground pork and half beef for a more authentic, Italian flavor.

Meatballs are my kid's favorite, so this recipe is a definite winner! I was pleasantly surprised to see no breadcrumbs in this recipe (crumbs can sometimes be overwhelming as a filler). The Parmesan is just the right amount and everything binds well. Definitely opt for the 80/20 or 80/15 blends of ground beef to keep these juicy and delicious!

These meatballs were so good! They're good in spaghetti or by themselves. I like to eat them with just a little sauce. My boys also loved these, so the next time I make them I'll probably double the batch.
