- Put the meatballs into a lightly greased roasting dish with small gaps in between.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until becoming golden brown.
- Remove from oven .
- Place meatballs on biscuit/cookie cooling racks to cool and drain
- Do not overcook:
If overcooked the meatballs will dry out and or will form a hard crust on the outside.
- Do Not Overmix:
The trick to keeping meatballs extra tender and juicy is not over mixing when you combine the ingredients.
Overmixing makes them tough so when making this meatball recipe, mix just until combined!
- Size Matters:
Ensuring the meatballs are the same size will ensure they cook at the same rate.
- Don’t be Lean:
Making sure your meat has a bit of fat helps keep them tender.
If you’re using extra lean meat, a dash of olive oil or fat can be added.
