This recipe came from my sister, Rachel, and it's now the only way I make meatballs. Take a look at the meatball recipe and click through for the homemade sauce to go along with them.
1-1/2 pounds ground beef (preferably 80/20 ground chuck)
1/2 pound Italian-style pork sausage (casings removed)* I use spicy
2 extra-large eggs (slightly beaten)
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
3 cloves roosted garlic, pressed
1/2 cup minced sweet onion
1 Tablespoon oregano (finely chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried)
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh mozzarella, diced into 1 inch cubes for meatballs
I usually then transfer the meatballs to sauce to finish cooking before serving alongside pasta. Click here for my simple sauce recipe.
