Meatballs are very all-American, but my husband was not a meat ball fan until this recipe. These meatballs are full of flavor and not mushy (a common meatball complaint for him!) When I make them I freeze half. (Sadly my boys are now eating so many that freezing half means no leftovers for lunch, but this is a great freezer meal!) Making croutons is easy! I save my bread heals and dry buns for our homemade croutons. It makes me feel less wasteful! (For a while I had so many bun flops that we had a steady supply!)
2 pounds lean ground meat
1 pound sausage
1 1/2 cups croutons (small)
Mix above ingredients and shape into balls.
Place on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. (Your favorite marinara sauce works great as a dip!)
