Spaghetti and Meatballs

Total time:  1 hour, plus pasta cook time.

1 pound hamburger
1 pound pork sausage (I like to use a roll of Jimmy Dean Premium Pork Regular Sausage)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 large eggs
1/2 roll of Ritz crackers (approx. 17-20 crackers)
1 tablespoon of oregano
1 tablespoon of parsley
1 tablespoon dried onion or 1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Place meat into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle seasonings on top of meat. Crush crackers into fine pieces across meat and seasonings. Add eggs and mix by hand for 3-5 minutes.

Shape into meatballs and place in an oven safe baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.

Lift the edge of the aluminum foil to allow steam to escape. Bake 15 more minutes.

Seen here with spaghetti, Classico’s tomato and basil sauce, and asiago cheese.
