YIELD: 10 large meatballs    PREP: 10 minutes    COOK: 40 minutes    TOTAL: 2 hours


1 pound meatloaf mix (mixture of ground beef, pork and veal)
⅓ cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons grated Romano or Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon finely minced yellow onion
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried parsley
2 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mix with your hands until thoroughly combined.

Shape into large meatballs (I use a heaping large cookie scoop, which is 3 tablespoons) and place on the baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the meatballs over, reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Place the meatballs in a simmering pot of sauce for at least 1 hour before serving.
