ground Italian sausage (sweet, mild, or hot)
breadcrumbs (Italian seasoned breadcrumbs or Panko breadcrumbs)
salt & pepper
Combine. Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C). In a large bowl, mix all meatball ingredients until just combined. Do not over-mix as that will make the meatballs dense and tough.
Shape. Portion out the meatball mixture and then roll balls in your hands to shape into 1½ to 2-inch meatballs (you should end up with roughly 12). Choose a broiler pan or wire rack on a baking sheet and generously coat with non-stick cooking spray or oil.
Bake. Place on your chosen baking vessel almost to the point of touching and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature is 160°F (71°C).
A simple classic, you cannot go wrong with this recipe! Serve on top of garlic parmesan angel hair pasta, with spaghetti bolognese, or serve on some crusty bread as a meatball sandwich! Enjoy!
