Homemade meatballs are very simple to make, especially since we skip the messy step of pan-frying them before adding them to the sauce. I use a standard half-beef/half-pork mixture in this recipe. If you prefer, you can replace the milk with water or beef broth.


  • 1 c. fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. ground pork
  • 1/2 lb. Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 c. freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 tbspextra-virgin olive oil
  • (32-oz.) jar marinara sauce, or homemade marinara


  1. Wrap a baking sheet in foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, soak bread crumbs in milk for 20 minutes.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Cook and stir onions in hot oil for 20 minutes, or until translucent.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef and pork. With a rubber spatula, combine the onions, bread crumb mixture, eggs, parsley, garlic, salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, Italian herb seasoning, and Parmesan cheese into the meat mixture. Refrigerate for about an hour, covered.
  5. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220 degrees C).
  6. Form the meat mixture into 1 1/2-inch-diameter balls with wet hands. Arrange on a baking sheet that has been preheated.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.


Some recipes call for equal parts beef, veal, and pork, which is also tasty but more expensive. Ground beef comes in a variety of lean-to-fat ratios these days. Most stores sell 90 percent lean, 10% fat, but for this recipe, I prefer an 80 percent lean, 20% fat ratio.

After the meatballs have been cooked, place them in your favorite prepared tomato sauce for 1 to 2 hours.
