Italian Meatballs

From Parade Newspaper Insert – Patricia Heaton

  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Marinara sauce

Combine bread crumbs and water. Stir in eggs, Parmesan, herbs, salt, and pepper. Add meat; mix well. With wet hands, form 20-24 small balls. Heat oil and cook meatballs until brown, turning regularly, over low to medium heat. Place meatballs on paper towels to absorb any oil. Heat sauce to a boil. Lower to simmer, add meatballs, and cook, loosely covered, for 30-40 minutes. Serve with spaghetti.

  1. Just made these tonight! Delish!! I didn’t have any eggs, so I just increased the water, and they were still great! So glad I spotted this recipe on here!
