Recipe by Superstarr
"This is my version of meatballs based on experimentation from several different recipes, including my mother's. I like to use these in spaghetti sauce, of course, but they're also delicious in my meatball subs. You can double or triple the recipe - sky's the limit! - and freeze."

dry bread crumbs, or as needed
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
eggs, slightly beaten
ground black pepper
Out of dry bread crumbs at the moment, I used crushed garlic croutons instead. I made no other changes. GREAT meatballs. Excellent for meatball sandwiches.
These were so good. I forgot to put the bread crumbs in. They were still really good, but fell apart when we reheated them. Also made them much smaller
Fabulous as is!! I did make my meatballs bite size since that is how my family likes them. At that size, I only cooked them 6 minutes and that seemed about right (less or more depending on if you like to see a little red or if you like crispy mearballs). Thanks for a great recipe, my new "go to" recipe!
Just Made These Tonight For The First Time And I Have Never Had A Better Meatball....These Are Moist And Full Of Flavor!! Thanks For Sharing!
I made these for a Christmas party and they were delicious! I added a half pound of sausage because I had some to use up. These will be my go-to homemade meatball from now on! Thanks Superstarr!
I thought these were pretty good. I followed the recipe, I just used 93% lean beef and cut the black pepper amount in half. They were a little on the herby side, but I can see them working with a tomato or a beef sauce. They were huge, compared to what I expected. They were about 3" and after cooking were still about 2 1/2" sized meatballs. Mine needed to cook 35 min. be flipped and then have another 20 minutes more. I cut the onion kind of small, worried they wouldn't cook in time, but with the extra minutes that helped. They were good with best marinara sauce yet. I plan to try them with a gravy to. 2 are filling to me, especially if eaten with something else.
Good meatballs; used for subs. I felt the portions were HUGE, double my typical portion anyhow, so I ended up freezing half. I had even halved the recipe! I think you could get 8 servings if served in sandwiches or over spaghetti out of 2 lbs of ground meat. I used ground turkey and added more Worcestershire b/c I think it helps 'beef' up the flavor when using ground turkey in recipes calling for beef (I find it makes turkey less noticeable to the usual beef-eaters). I made the meatballs a bit smaller than directed, and they were perfectly cooked after 15 minutes. Good balance of the onion, garlic and spices. Thank you!
These were great and EASY! I took others' suggestions and made mini meatballs about 1 1/2 inch diameter. They were awesome and baked at 425 for 15 minutes (hot oven). Thanks, Starr, these are ex-L-ent!
