Course: Main
Author: Kristi

Ingredients

  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef 7% fat
  • 2 Hot Italian Sausage links casing removed (discard) and sausage crumbled (approx 8 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs extra large
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • -----
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons butter

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients (except the butter!) together until thoroughly mixed.
  • Roll into evenly sized balls (this is easy by using a cookie scoop!).
  • In a skillet, cook meatballs in melted butter over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until done through.

Notes

Do not crowd the pan when frying the meatballs. Be sure to leave enough room so that you can easily turn them to cook all sides. Cook in batches if necessary.
