Baked Meatballs

64

These easy baked meatballs are perfect for busy weeknights! Instead of standing at the stove to pan-fry meatballs in batches, you can pop them right into the oven for just 10 minutes. Whip up a made-from-scratch marinara sauce while the meatballs bake, and dinner is ready! Serve the baked Italian meatballs on their own with crusty bread, tossed with spaghetti, or stuffed inside sub rolls.
