This recipe makes a double batch because I like to freeze the leftovers for later. Pour over the milk and set aside for a few minutes until the milk has soaked into the bread. Also add in some garlic, pepper, basil, parsley, and an egg to keep it bound together. For a shortcut, Kelsey Nixon uses frozen meatballs and jarred sauce as the filler in her egg rolls.
I had my eyes on these since the recipe came out and finally had time to make them tonight. We’ve saved the recipes from this guide to your Recipe Box for easy access anytime you visit.

Michael’s five-star recipe is a sure-fire stunner, with plump beef meatballs and al dente spaghetti. My granddaughter loved the sauce and everyone agreed it would be a recipe we would make again. Place basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, garlic, onion, cream and milk in a food processor or blender.
You simply put a small amount of oil in a roasting pan and heat in the oven for 5 mins or so. Then toss meatballs into hot oil and bake for a few minutes to sear/brown” them, then add sauce directly to pan and continue to bake for half hour or so. The result is seared meatballs baked in sauce with no standing over the stove and getting splattered!
I make very often the meatballs with the sauce and then serve along with the spaghetti. Lean ground turkey is a great healthy swap that will make for a far healthier meatball dish. As owners of New York City’s wildly popular restaurant The Meatball Shop, Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow know a thing or two about good meatballs.
