Rusty's Meatballs


  • 1 pound ground beef (or mix with ground sausage)
  • Bread crumbs, homemade is best but from a store is OK (sorry I don't measure but it's around a cup)
  • 1 egg
  • A splash or two of milk to just moisten
  • Spices (basil and Italian seasoning, mostly, but feel free to add oregano or whatever you like)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed


  1. Make meatballs by mixing beef, bread crumbs, egg, milk and spices. Roll into balls to just fit the palm of your hand (guys a little smaller).
  2. Brown on all sides in olive oil, a clove or 2 of smashed garlic and chopped onion.
  3. After all are browned, remove meatballs to a platter.
  4. Make your favorite sauce in the same pot.
  5. Add meatballs. Cook for about 4 hours.
