Here’s a great classic recipe for Italian-Style Meatballs that my husband has really perfected. These moist, tender meatballs are a savory combination of ground beef and pork (plus the option to include ground veal for added flavor and tenderness if you can find it at your grocer or butcher), and they are perfectly seasoned with onions, garlic, parmesan cheese and other herbs and seasonings.
We’re also sharing our trick to making these meatballs so tender and moist: slices of white bread soaked in milk are used to help bind the meat together, rather than dry bread crumbs which we’ve seen used in so many other Italian-style meatball recipes.
This recipe makes a generous amount of meatballs so you’ll have lots of options for how to use them – and they freeze quite well! Whether you are making spaghetti and meatballs with your favorite tomato sauce, or a classic Italian Meatball Soup, or eating them as is, this is a great go-to meatball recipe for you to have in your recipe collection.
