"These are amazing and nothing amazing is ever easy; keep that in mind when you undertake this recipe. Try to avoid tasting them before you're ready to serve because you may end up eating them all and your guests will be left with only marinara and pasta. I make this recipe as written, then I freeze half of it when combined as it makes about 40-50, 1 1/2-inch meatballs (enough to feed Sicily.) If you won't be freezing half, then use more sauce to cover all the meatballs. Serve over your favorite pasta, or try it with provolone on a meatball sub."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

If you like Italian Sausage you'll love these meatballs. They make a great meatball sandwich. I cooked the meatballs in two batches. One batch I fried as the recipe stated, and the other I just baked as another reviewer suggested. Just baking until the meatballs was easier and I could not tell the difference between the two batches. Also, if your going to go to this much work to make meatballs, don't use jarred marinara sauce, make your own from one the many recipes found on this site. Much better. Thanks for the recipe Kararnmi.
I did not add in the mozzarella or ricotta cheese, but might try that the next time! I also baked the meatballs instead of frying at 350' for 25 minutes...they were outstanding!
This was absolutely superb! Just an explosion of flavor.
I made these on the fly with what I had in the house, and omitted the ricotta, mozzerella & egg, and used dried parsley and basil. I also just used ground beef, since I was sausageless. I baked them at 350 for 25 minutes, like another review suggested, and didn't sear first.
Since I was making food for the week, I didn't simmer them in sauce, either. But OMG -- MOIST & DEELISH!! It was all I could do not to eat half of them myself as I let them cool before putting them away!! #BestMeatballRecipeEver!!!
Very good! I made meatball sandwiches with my leftover meatballs and they were the best I have ever eaten! I topped the sandwiches with marinara, shaved Parmesan and mozerella cheese! Absolutely divine!!
