Spicy Meatballs Recipe
This was the first time I have every made spicy meatballs and they were awesome!! We love having people over to watch football games. Most people want spicy foods during our home tailgating. However, I usually don’t make spicy foods because so many of us in our home have heartburn. Lately, my husband and I have decided to be proactive about our heartburn problems. While I was at Walmart, picking up all the ingredients I needed for spicy meatballs, I picked up a box of Nexium® 24HR Tablets 42 count package also!
Now we do not have to worry about heartburn, we get all-day, all-night protection from frequent heartburn with Nexium® 24HR!* (*Use as directed. *May take 1-4 days for full effect.) The #1 Choice of Doctors and Pharmacists* for their own frequent heartburn (*Among PCPs and Pharmacists who use a branded OTC PPI). Now, we can enjoy spicy foods too!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground sausage
- 3/4 c panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 c freshly grated Parmesan
- 1/2 c ricotta cheese
- 1/4 c fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cloves garlic, grated
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil, for frying pan
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 small onion, diced
- Two 28oz cans tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- pinch of red pepper
- pinch of black pepper
Combine ground beef, ground sausage, panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan, ricotta cheese, parsley, red pepper, salt, garlic, eggs, milk, and black pepper in a bowl. Using your hands, mash until thoroughly combined.
Form into small balls and placed on a baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Tip: This would be a great time to combine all ingredients for the sauce in a bowl, to have ready.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Brown the meatballs, then place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb extra grease. I found placing the lid on the skillet during browning helped to cook the meatballs thoroughly. Also, holding the lid down tight and shaking the skillet helped to roll the meatballs to equally brown the sides.
Once you have removed all the meatballs, pour in all the ingredients for the sauce. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Add the meatballs back to the skillet and simmer another 15 minutes.
Transfer the meatballs to a dish and serve the sauce as a dipping sauce.
