Recipe

My grandmother made the most delicious meatballs. They were always a combination of whatever meat she had in the house beef, pork, sausage, and veal usually combined with eggs, Parmesan, and parsley. Not much else but wow, were they delicious. Inspired by her, I recently decided to make some simple and delicious meatballs with leftover beef and turkey sausage I had at home, The sausage adds tons of flavor without needing lots of added ingredients. This version is baked but you can also cook them in sauce if you prefer. These freeze great so make up a big batch.
