I recently discovered this recipe in my tattered, premier issue of Quick Cooking! My family is picky about meatballs, so I halved the recipe to give them a try. Next time, I'll make enough to freeze, as they are so, so good! I did bake them closer to 30 minutes, and once they cooled, let them simmer in a crockpot with spaghetti sauce - we enjoyed them on meatball subs and over spaghetti - definitely a keeper!
I halved this recipe. Very good! After I cooked them in the oven, I put them in pasta sauce and let them simmer away.....delish.
I made these for the first time. I used non-stick foil to line the baking sheets and did not use racks. They were easy to turn and because I used lean ground beef, there was no grease on the pan after baking. My husband suggests substituting a fraction of the ground beef with sausage next time. I added some garlic powder, but even with that, they were a little mild for our tastes. Maybe I'll use seasoned dry breadcrumbs next time. It's a versatile and easy recipe to customize.
I cook from scratch for a large family due to food allergies. I like to plan and make ahead many items. This is my go to recipe for meatballs. I make them many times during the year and do add many of the suggested items that have been previously suggested. However, I form my meatballs with a scoop to make the all the same size and bake them on a broiler pan in the oven. This allows the grease to drip away during cooking. I also drain/cool them on paper towel and wax paper lined cooling rack before storing. My family loves them. Thank you to the person whom submitted this delicious recipe!!!
This is a great and EASY recipe!!! Along with everything above, I added some sage sausage, Italian herb spices, 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and used garlic salt instead of regular salt. This is a FUN recipe to prepare. You can add whatever you like to spice it up. Thanks for posting this! I will definitely keep it :)
The original recipe for these in quick cooking has different things to do with them when you get them out of the freezer. I enjoy all of the adaptations: meatball sandwiches, spaghetti and meatballs, Swedish meatballs and I am not sure of the final one, I lost that page. They are all good though.
How do you cook the frozen meatballs? Do they need to be thawed first?
I was unsure if we would like these since the recipe sounded bland; so I only made 1 pound. They were very easy and quite nice. I am a meatball lover but I do not love making them. This was easy. I think next time I will add a little allspice and perhaps a cream sauce to make them more like Swedish meatballs. Hubby like them too. I baked them on nonstick foil and the cleanup was simple.
