- 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 1/2 lbs. ground hot sausage
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
- 4 slices of bread, crusts removed
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup parmesan
- salt & pepper
- 1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat oil in medium sized skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion, garlic, and parsley until soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
In a bowl, soak bread in milk while onion mixture cools (about 10 minutes).
In a large bowl mix meats, egg, parmesan, salt, and pepper.
Squeeze excess milk out of bread and add to meat mixture along with onion mixture. Be careful not to over mix. Roll mixture into 1 1/2 inch meatballs.
Place meatballs in a large oven proof saute pan. Cover in marinara sauce. Top with mozarella cheese and bake in oven covered in tin foil for 20 minutes. Uncover and cook for another 10 minutes. Serve with spaghetti.
