  • Pre-heat oven to 400
  • Grab an oversized bowl and dump all the ingredients in
  • Mix it up with hands until fully mixed
  • Make meatballs to be a little bigger than a golf ball
  • Place on baking sheet
  • Bake for 25 minutes
  • Remove from oven and add to sauce.


These meatballs can also be sauteed, but it is less work and lower in calories if you bake them. They are just as good baked as they are fried.
Meatballs can also be cooked directly in the sauce but I prefer them pre-cooked before going in the sauce.
