Heavenly Meatballs

I’ve been making these mouthwatering Heavenly Meatballs for years thanks to a dear old friend of mine and I will never go back to my old recipes. You will understand the name of this recipe as soon as you taste the first one. These meatballs can be served by themselves or over traditional spaghetti sauce but I think the game changer is with Butternut Squash Marinara Sauce and Spaghetti. You will thank me later.

Ingredients

  • 2lbs of ground beef or a equal 1:1 mixture of lean ground beef and ground turkey
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1.5 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 3 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1.5 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese in the can
  • 1 cup bread crumbs

*Note: I prefer to use 1lb of lean ground beef and 1lb of ground turkey mixed for this recipe.

Directions

Pre-heat your oven to 400F

Mix all your ingredients together in a very large bowl.

The best way to fully mix this is by hand. So prepare to get a little dirty or let the kiddos help. Other than eating them this is my girls favorite part. After you have it mixed together, start to roll them tightly between your hands and make 1.5” meatballs and bake on a cookie sheet for 20-25 mins. Cool on cooling racks first if you plan to freeze them. Try this doubled to freeze more at a time.

    These meatballs were so easy to make and they were so delicious. My husband and I love them. For the kiddos, I’ll have to lower the pepper flakes because they think they are a tad bit spicy.
