Let me start off by saying that I absolutely hate dry meatballs. I honestly think that one time, I didn't eat meatballs for like two years straight because I ate one that was so dry and gross. I decided to make meatballs last week to go with some spaghetti squash I had made and here's how I went about doing it. I literally googled "best meatball recipe" and looked at about 10 different sites that popped up, then decided to give it a go. I did not keep track of anything I added into the mix, so I had to remake them because I want you all to experience these. I saw recipes that used eggs, buttermilk, breadcrumbs, actual slices of white bread. Who knew there were so many different ways to make random balls of meat??
I ended up just combining little parts from different recipes that I read online and they turned out so damn good, and juicy. This recipe makes about 20 small meatballs, or 10 big ones. I literally ate them plain... popped those things like I would doughnut holes. Lol, I am gross. It's fine.
A few tips - if your meatballs are too mushy you can add in a little flour to thicken them up. Also, don't be alarmed if you notice gooey stuff on the cookie sheet once you take the meatballs out of the oven. I don't know what that stuff is, but I'm guessing it is part of the egg/buttermilk ingredients. Either way, it's what makes them juicy so don't worry!
