Meatballs with Ricotta Cheese

Ingredients

1 lb of ground chuck
1 lb of sweet Italian sausage, removed from casing
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup panko Japanese bread crumbs
3/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tbs dry oregano
kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Add all ingredients to a large bowl and combine thoroughly with your hands.
  • If the mixture is too loose add more bread crumbs.
  • Form mixture into golf ball sized meat balls and place them on a aluminum foil covered sheet or alternatively place them in a mini muffin tin pan. This will keep meat balls perfectly round and help them to cook evenly.
  • Cover the meat balls and refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake meatballs for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and add to marinara sauce if desired.
