Bloody Good Meatballs
Even though I sliced my finger pretty good the other day, I like to finish what I start, so here’s the basic recipe:
Mix a couple pounds of ground beef with a few eggs, a small shredded (yes I said shredded) onion, a few minced garlic cloves, a cup of fresh bread crumbs, a cup of parmesan cheese (oh yeah!), around a 1/4 cup milk and salt and pepper- mix real good.
A good way to test the flavor is to fry a mini piece and see how it tastes and adjust:
So, now your ready to form them in to meatballs, I like mine a bit smaller, but that’s the beauty of cooking, make yours just as big or small as you want.
Brown the Meatballs in a skillet:
And then add to your favorite tomato sauce. I just added half a can diced tomatoes, half a can of tomato puree, (I think I might have added some water too), chopped garlic, chopped onion, Italian spices, and a little sugar, simmer for 15 minutes or so and add the meatballs to it. Simmer that covered for 20 more minutes and you’ve got some bloody good meatballs.
