Authentic Italian Meatballs for #SundayFunday

Welcome to #SundayFunday! Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm invited fellow bloggers to kick back, relax, and share something tasty and fun each weekend. "Sunday should be a Family Funday. Please join us in sharing recipes that will help you to enjoy your Sunday." If you're a blogger interested in joining us, just visit our Facebook group and request to join - we'd love to have you!

Sue from Palatable Pastime invited us to: "Choose a recipe that is Roman or Italian to celebrate the month of August and pay tribute to the 1st Roman Emperor, the namesake of August."

I opted for meatballs! Who doesn't need another good "go-to" meatball recipe? Ok so I don't claim to know anything about the authenticity of this recipe, but someone claims it is, so I'm going with it! All I know is they are super tender, and really delicious. Perfect for meatball subs or spaghetti!

  • Authentic Italian Meatballs

    1 lb ground beef
    2 eggs
    1⁄4 cup milk
    1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
    1⁄2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon fresh parsley
    1/2 TBS minced garlic 
    1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

    1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix by hand. Shape the meatballs into about 1" round balls.
    2. Bring a large pot of your favorite marinara sauce to a low simmer and add the meatballs and gently submerge them in liquid.
    3. Cover and simmer on low (checking to be sure sauce isn't sticking) for about 1 1/2 - 3 hours, depending on how fast they're simmering.
    4. Serve in sandwiches, over pasta, etc.!
