Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

From the kitchen of Tracey Doty


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 C finely chopped onion
  • 2 T Italian spice
  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 2 T olive oil in meat mixture
  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 2T minced garlic
  • 2 T chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tsp ground fresh pepper
  • 1/2 C Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 C olive oil for sautéing


Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix till all is blended with your hands.

Form 2 (or whatever size) inch balls and sauté all sides till golden brown on medium heat and place on a paper towel when done to soak up the extra fat.

For a healthier version, bake at 350 for 30 minutes.


Add cooked meatballs to a sauce for a fuller taste, or to any pasta.
