Italian Meatballs | Frugal & Simple

Italian Meatballs

These meatballs are so simple to make and turn a typical spaghetti meal into a delicious dinner!


1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 medium onion


1. Mix all ingredients together. Don’t add all of the water at one time. Mixture should be moist but not so that meatballs fall apart.

2. Shape meatballs to desired size. (I used this cookie scoop to make sure all of my meatballs were the same size.)

3. Place on a broiler pan. (I just used my cookie sheets!)

4. Broil until outside is slightly brown on one side and then turn and broil the other side. (Here is a shot comparing the cooked meatball and the uncooked.)

5.I then put mine on the cooling rack so they would completely cool before I froze them.

Yield: 62 meatballs (doubled recipe)

I separated the meatballs into 5-12 packs and froze them so now I have homemade  Italian meatballs to add to my spaghetti sauce! (And I sampled the other 2 which were delicious!)
