Instructions

MEATBALLS

  • In a medium bowl, combine Italian seasoning, Parmesan, garlic powder, salt, pepper and onion, and mix well. 
  • Crumble ground beef and ground pork into a large bowl. Sprinkle seasoning mixture over meat mixture. 
  • Whisk egg and Worchestershire sauce together, and add to meat mixture. Use your hands and mix together until just combined. 
  • Add bread crumbs and continue to mix with your hands until just combined. You don't want to overmix, just get it to the point where the mixture isn't sticky
  • Use a cookie scoop to form equal-sized meatballs. I use a 1 5/8" scoop. Release scoop into your hands, and roll balls between your palms to shape. 

MEATBALL MOZZARELLA SKILLET BAKE

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Add half of the Easy Homemade Marinara Sauce in a cast iron skillet or baking dish. Top with meatballs. It's okay if the meatballs touch because they will reduce a little as they cook. Cover with remaining marinara
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and evenly spread with mozzarella cheese. Return skillet to top rack of oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, until cheese is bubbly
  • Remove from oven, garnish with parsley, and serve
