These baked meatballs are a compilation of many, many meatball recipes to finally achieve what I consider the best meatballs!Add to your favourite tomato sauce and serve with pasta or serve them in crusty bread rolls.
If you want to try bringing this to an even better state of Nirvana: Use only 1/2 lb of beef and add 1/2 pound of ground pork. Also replace skim milk with 1/2 a cup of ricotta cheese. I think you'll find you'll have some moister more flavorful meatballs. - 05 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've been using LTH's recipe for some time now and its my staple. I have subbed an egg for the milk without any problems. Also, I never have seasoned bread crumbs so I just up the Italian seasoning (can't tell you by how much cause I don't measure this recipe anymore). If I'm just making this for myself, I add some additional sriacha for more heat (or if I don't have the Frank's at home) I bake these on a slightly greased cookie sheet and flip halfway. These freeze great cooked or raw. Oh and I've used 80/20, 90/10, and 95/5 beef with these and they've all turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!!! - 05 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thank you , everyone, for the glowing reviews! We at the LTH house LOVE these meatballs! I almost always at least triple the recipe when I make it so I can freeze a few bags of meatballs. I bake and then freeze the baked meatballs. I'm kinda lazy (ok, a lot lazy) and never feel like taking the time to place the cooked meatballs on a cookie sheet, freeze them, then bag them. I'm lucky if I let them cool before I toss them in a freezer bag and chuck 'em in the freezer. I freeze them in freezer bags without sauce. It makes for crazy easy meals when no one planned ahead/feels like cooking! These do have a nice bite, so adjust the crushed red and hot pepper sauce (Red Hot at our house) to YOUR tastes. I also rarely ever feel like dicing an onion (I'm lazy, remember?) so I usually sub dried minced. I also tend to forget that my aversion to black pepper is generally abnormal, so, if you're not a freak like me, you may choose to add some black pepper, too! Come as you are and enjoy Meatball Nirvana! - 05 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
