Basic Baked Meatballs
With Easter this Sunday, I know that many of you are busily making your preparations for the holiday. Dyeing eggs, filling Easter baskets, and gathering all of the ingredients for the big family dinner -- whatever items are left on your to-do list, I think it's safe to assume that making meatballs isn't one of them. That's why I'm sharing the recipe with you now so you can bookmark it (or pin it) to make it some other weekend.
I'm always keeping the best interests of my readers at heart :)
When I make meatballs, I like to make way more than I need so I can have some now and freeze some for later. That way I can defrost the frozen meatballs on a night when I don't feel particularly motivated to cook a full meal from scratch.
Lots of people will shape their meatballs and then allow them to cook all afternoon in a pot (or slow cooker) of simmering marinara sauce. The meat adds tremendous flavor to the sauce and the whole house smells amazing while they're cooking.
While I love that method, there are times when I just don't want to wait that long. I've found that baking meatballs off in the oven is a great way to get homemade meatballs in under an hour. Plus, baking them is a healthy alternative to frying them in a pan!
So, how do you like to cook your meatballs?
