Homemade meatballs are easy when you start with LGCM Italian sausage! We have 3 varieties for you to choose from – hot or mild made with beef and pork that come in 1/4 lb. links or bulk, which is an all pork product that is just a plain ground sausage. This recipe uses our bulk Italian sausage for convenience, but you can substitute a linked sausage, just cut the meat out from the casing. Serve these meatballs with your favorite pasta sauce and enjoy!
- 1 lb Leahy’s Bulk Italian Sausage
- 1 Egg (lightly beaten)
- 1/3 cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/4 cup Onion (chopped fine)
- 1 clove Garlic (minced)
Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Form into balls of your desired size. You should be able to make about 20 small meatballs, up to 8 large meatballs. Smaller meatballs bake faster than larger meatballs.
Place the meatballs on a rack over a foil lined baking pan. This will help them cook evenly. Place in an oven preheated to 350ºF and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the meatballs reach 160ºF. Cook times will vary based on size. Once done, remove from oven and serve with your favorite noodles and sauce. Enjoy!
