Husband approved Meatballs!

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)
3 eggs

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!)

  1. sounds really good! I like the idea of adding the croutons!

    1. Between the sausage and the croutons these have some great flavor.
