Italian Meatballs

Standard

When I was a little girl, my dad would have me in the kitchen making meatballs.  Definetly one of my favorite memories of us together. Now I like to do this with my children.   I usually throw it together paying no attention to the amount of ingredients I use( a little of this and that).  So this last time I cooked them, I paid attention and wrote down the ingredients.

What you will need:

1 Pound of Italian Sausage

1 Pound of Ground Beef

1 Cup of Plain Bread Crumbs

2 eggs

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Garlic Powder

2 Teaspoons of Onion Powder

2 Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning

3 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It is helpful to have a large cast iron skillet, if not I would recommend your nonstick skillet.  Heat 3 tablespoons of olive in your skillet over medium heat.  Mix the rest of the ingredients by hand in a large bowl.  Now is a good time to bring in the kiddos.  Have everyone make golf ball size meatballs, and you place them in the pre-heated skillet.  Now you are going to cook them for about 20-30 minutes, turning them often.  I like mine well down, almost crunchy so I take the full thirty minutes.  If you have some garlic salt, I like to sprinkle some on top of the meatballs while they are cooking.  That is it, just add to your favorite spaghetti sauce and enjoy!  (makes about 40 meatballs)
