Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef (or a mix of 1/2 beef and 1/2 pork sausage)
  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese ( plus more for garnish )
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped parsley
  • olive oil for browning
  • a jar of your favorite marinara sauce
  • cooked spaghetti


Method

  1. Set oven to 350F
  2. Put all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Break up the meat and mix everything together with your fingertips, making sure to distribute everything evenly, without compacting the meat too much.
  3. Form the mixture into two large meatballs.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet until hot, and brown the meatballs on all sides.
  5. To finish cooking the meatballs, I put them in a small oven safe pot and cover with the marinara sauce. Cover loosely with foil and bake for about 30-40 minutes until the meat is cooked through. A thermometer inserted i the center of a meatball should read 160F.
  6. Serve over spaghetti, garnished with Parmesan cheese.
