Spicy Meatballs are one of the simplest dishes I have ever made. Most good chefs/ cooks know how to make a meatball. Whether you are adding them to pasta or making a meatball sandwich, meatballs are pretty easy to make. The trick is to make them flavorful. This meatball recipe was created to go with my Penne Pasta and Eggplant with Spicy Meatballs on the side.

1 package fresh Italian sausage
1 package ground pork
1 package fresh hot sausage
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
¼ cup panko bread crumbs
¼ cup milk
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp onion powder
Preheat oven to low broil.
Combine Parmesan cheese, egg and milk in a small bowl. Place meats and seasonings in a large bowl along with panko bread crumbs. Add egg mixture to the meat. Mix well to combine but do not over work the meat. Form into golf ball sized balls (or whatever size you like) and place meatballs in a large iron skillet. Place in the oven and brown the meatballs for about 15 minutes.
Remove the meatballs and place in a large pot with marinara sauce. Simmer over medium low heat for 30 to 40 minutes until meatballs are cooked all the way through.
These are good for spaghetti and meatball dishes, meatball sandwiches, appetizers and of course Penne Pasta and Eggplant with Meatballs on the side.
