How do you make your meatballs?

I made them today for the first time! I hope they turn out right. I didn't use a certain recipe just went with the flow of what I thought would be okay.

Preheat oven to 425 while preparing ingredients

Here is what I used:

2 pounds ground beef (normally I buy gr. chuck but our store was out)

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup crushed saltine crackers

Garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper (didn't measure added by the eye)

1/2 red onion, diced

2 jars traditional Prego spaghetti sauce

Here is what I did while oven was preheating:

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl with hands

Ice cream scooped meatballs and rounded out onto foil lined bakind pan

Made 15 meatballs (could make more but made them larger)

Baked on 425 for 30 minutes

After finished baking scooped balls into crockpot while avoiding all grease

Added both jars of spaghetti sauce over the meatballs and cooking on low now. Probably for 4 hours total.

Going to serve over spaghetti noodles


I really hope they turn out! I'll update after supper tonight to update how they turn out!!

Update

They were delicious! My dh and in laws loved them as well as my 2 year old. My 4 year old is very.picky so all she would eat was the sauce lol! I think next time I'm going to try with Italian bread crumbs to see how those turn out. I was thinking as well that this recipe is very similar to my meatloaf lol :)

 My recipe is pretty similar only I use bread crumbs instead of crackers and I add shredded Parmesan cheese.

Pretty similar to what i do. I bake on a wire rack though so the grease drips off. And I dont cook them that long.....15 minutes.
