Recipe for Homemade Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs Recipe

Earlier in the week I shared my Italian Pasta Sauce Recipe with you all, so I thought I’d also share our family’s recipe for Italian Meatballs with you too! This is my husband’s Mom’s recipe (Mama Guzzi) and a family favorite. She was a wonderful cook and made amazing homemade meals. Mama Guzzi has alzheimer’s and is no longer able to make these delicious meals. Pop Guzzi put a book together with all of Mama’s recipes together for all of the kids and I’m excited to pass them along to your families!

Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 18 Meatballs

  • 1 lb Ground Chuck Beef
  • 1 lb Ground Italian Mild Sausage

  1. Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl
  2. Mix with your hands
  3. If the Mixture doesn’t seem to stick together add a LITTLE bit of milk (you don’t want it to be too mushy)
  4. Wet your hands with water
  5. Form Meatballs (I make them about the size of a golfball – see picture below)
  6. Rolled Italian Meatball for recipe
  7. Heat 1 cup of Vegetable oil in pan and heat over Medium/Low Heat
  8. Place the Meatballs in the pan and turn them to make sure all sides get browned
  9. Cook about 20 minutes until meatballs are cooked all the way through (time will depend on the size of your meatballs)
  10. Remove the Meatballs from the pan and Enjoy!
