Kittencal's Italian Melt in Your Mouth Meatballs

This post is more of a review of the recipe. I don't have pictures of the meatballs themselves because they are in the previous post as my meatball sub :) LOVE this recipe. You can find it here at Food.com.

I must say I was a little concerned about making them at first only because I never knew what it would take to make homemade meatballs. I found the one that seemed easy and had ingredients that I could pronounce. This fit the cake! The instructions were so easy! I made mine by baking them like a suggestion at the end of the directions instead of simmering them in sauce. Much easier if you ask me. The other changes I made were I used garlic powder instead of minced garlic. I omitted the oregano only because I didn't have any. And I only used 1 teaspoon of the seasoned salt. And I made my own breadcrumbs with my food processor. Needless to say after all that work I am never buying frozen ones again! I will make more of these as they were so easy! I am going to see how some of the leftover ones fair when I freeze them. I'll update when I use them next and we'll see how they taste. So the following is what I used and did, but feel free to use the original recipe.


1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 large egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons dried parsley

In large bowl combine all ingredients. I used my hands to mix. Shape into small meatballs and place on baking sheet. Cook at 350F for 25 minutes or until cooked through. Enjoy!

The frozen ones were just as delicious as the fresh out of the oven! I will be making these come my next freezer food day!
