Giacobbe Meatball Sandwich

With all the snow we had today I was not in the mood for a long dinner...I needed to shovel!!!I tend to make meatball sandwiches for my boys on crazy days and this was one of them!  These are so easy and I take them right out of the freezer!  I got this recipe from my mother-in-law years ago and still make them today.  She was Italian and she was an amazing cook.  I would always call her when I wanted to make an Italian meal she was the expert.  Here is a recipe she gave me for homemade meatballs.  I normally make a couple batches and freeze them for when I need a quick dinner.  Enjoy!


1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground veal
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
1/2 onion, chopped
1 small clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and Pepper to taste
Add water if it seems dry
NOTE: I usually make the meatball and use a little water in may hands to smooth out the meatball and make it stick together better.
1  Italian loaf of bread sliced for serving

Method:

Roll meatballs, and place in a 350 degree oven for 1/2 hour or so.  Rotate meatballs while cooking!  Once meatballs are cooked you can add to a Tomato sauce or you can freeze them for later use.  To reheat, just put the meatballs you wish to consume in a small sauce pan either with the sauce you want to use or a little water and a lid.  Warm them on medium heat for about 20 minutes until warmed all the way through.

  1. Looks good, but what does Giacobbe mean? I've never heard that word.

  2. It's my Mother-in-law's last name. She was a wonderful Italian cook and is missed in the family. This is one of the family recipes!
