These are tasty meatballs. Everyone has their own version. This one was based on what I had on hand and the fact that I needed to use up some ground beef and pork I used for something else. Though traditional Italian meatballs are usually fried I elected to bake them to reduce fat content a bit. I made a large batch which resulted in 28 meatballs 2 ounces each. They freeze well so making a large amount that can be used later is convenient. These are large meatballs so 2 will provide an ample serving with pasta. They are great with a good red sauce and any kind of pasta.
