Down Home Meatballs (Subs)
These meatballs are meant to be cooked with the Down Home Spaghetti Sauce. Or IN the Down Home Spaghetti Sauce. Yes, that is right! Really, you can’t believe how incredibly moist and delicious they are marinating in that sauce for several hours!
You can most definitely serve them as meatballs with the spaghetti sauce but we loved them atop of sub buns, melted with some Mozzarella and served as Meatball Subs!

- 1 batch Down Home Spaghetti Sauce
- 1 lbs ground beef
- .5 lb ground sausage
- 2 eggs
- 1 cups Italian Style Bread Crumbs
- 1 Tablespoons chopped basil
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together with clean hands. Make sure all ingredients are well incorporated. Scoop out a bit of mixture and roll in the palm of your hand until you have a rounded ball of meat, approximately 1 inch or less. Place on a foil lined cookie sheet. Repeat until you have used all of the meat mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (yes, just 15 minutes, the will cook longer when you add them to the spaghetti sauce). Remove from oven and add them to the Down Home Spaghetti Sauce. Cook in sauce at least 3 hours or until they reach an internal temperature above 160 degrees. Remove from sauce with slotted spoon and serve. Serve with spaghetti sauce and noodles or on buns as a meatball sub.
Cook through directions above including cooking them in the spaghetti sauce. When removing them from sauce place them in a freezer safe container and freeze. To serve: Thaw. Heat through on stove, in slow cooker or in the microwave. Serve.
For Meatball Subs – spoon out meatballs into a freezer container and place 2 cups of tomato sauce with them. Freeze. To serve: Heat through on stove, in slow cooker or in the microwave. Place on sub buns with some tomato sauce. Add Mozzarella cheese and place in oven for a few minutes to melt. Serve.
