Juicy Italian meatball recipe

Juicy Italian meatball recipe

Are you ready for some ridiculously easy, juicy and flavoursome meatballs? Then you should definitely give my meatball recipe a try!

What often makes the difference between an ordinary meatball and a “chef worthy” meatball is the bite. The meatball should be deliciously juicy and moist. I’ve tried many different meatball recipes and eventually created my own foolproof recipe.

The secret of these super moist meatballs are the breadcrumbs. Yes, just the ordinary store-bought breadcrumbs. Believe me, this secret will change your life!

The meatballs make a great snack by themselves, but you could also finish them up by simmering the meatballs (after baking) in your favorite pasta sauce.
