So, frozen meatballs are good….especially if you buy the angus one’s, but homemade Italian meatballs in Italian Sauce is SO MUCH BETTER!  This recipe is FULL of flavor and seasonings and will have you saying, “Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm!”  There is definitely something about making homemade meat balls and getting to choose the way to fry it with the RIGHT kind of oil. I use canola oil because it is cost effective, has a good smoke point, as well as, the one I buy is heart healthy!   These meatballs are paired with Italian sauce and I have also made it as an appetizer and dipped in bar-b-que sauce it is very versatile and VERY GOOD! After you make it, you have to tell me what you think! Enjoy!

  1. Read through the recipe you used for the meatballs. I do put a little bit of a different spin on mine by simmering them in the sauce I prepared until they reach serving temperature rather than frying. I do know some people prefer to cook them in the oven but to me simmering them in the sauce makes them more moist and flavorful.
