Perfectly Moist Meatballs

I have to admit that I am really excited about this post.

I’ve been searching for a long time now for the perfect meatball recipe and this one just might be it. Spaghetti and meatballs is definitely up there in my top 10 favorite meals, and it’s my opinion that it’s the meatballs that make or break the dish. Perhaps the most difficult part about trying many different meatball recipes is that I could always tell something was lacking, but could never put my thumb on exactly what it was.

Then, a few days ago I had an epiphany. I finally realized what was lacking in all my attempts to produce the perfect meatball: moisture! I realized that the meatballs that I truly enjoyed were very moist and juicy. So I began my recipe search where I always do – Google. I searched for “moist meatball recipe” or something of that nature, and came across {this} recipe:


[yumprint-recipe id=’28’]The original recipe called for 2 slices of bread. I substituted the gf bread crumbs and they seemed to work well. However, I think that because I used bread crumbs rather that pieces of bread, I could’ve gotten away with using less milk – maybe 3/4 cup. The only problem I ran into with using a whole cup was that they were a little harder to form into balls because they were so moist.


But all in all these were fantastic! Exactly what I look for in a good meatball. I would imagine that these would be great to make ahead and have in the freezer for a quick addition to plain old spaghetti. Give these a try sometime – you won’t regret it!

    Spaghetti and meatballs are my favorite comfort food.  My Ma has an amazing recipe (VERY similar to this one!) that she received from my Dad's mom.  We've been slack on the cooking the past couple of weeks, but I think spaghetti and meatballs are exactly what we need.

    Sometimes to skinny them up a bit, I use half lean ground beef and half ground turkey!
