Homemade meatballs, super tender and very filling. IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER?

No, the answer is always no. Yes, I sometimes grab those Trader Joe’s mini meatballs from the freezer aisle (they’re utterly fantastic and my only guilty pleasure) but at the end of the day, nothing beats home.

And with this method of cooking, these meatballs require minimal effort and easy cleaning. Not to mention, they cook so evenly, giving those tender meatballs perfectly browned and melt-in-your-mouth, swimming in the most sausage goodness.

Serve over pasta, polenta or subs. It is all so good.
