Grandma Maroni's Meatballs and Maroni Sauce 100 Year Old Recipe
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
16 ingredients
40 servings
I found this recipe on the Food Network website on Throwdown with Bobby Flay. It is from Maroni Cuisine in Northport, New York. I saw the episode and was inspired to make the meatballs. Boy am I glad I did. They are so good! Truly the best meatballs I have ever eaten. The original recipe uses ounces-I have somewhat converted it into teaspoons and cups. (Hopefully I have done it correctly, but it tastes good too with my measurements!)
