These meatballs are definitely not for the summer months - unless you're in South America! I crave these on cold nights when all I want to be is curled up in bed. These meatballs are tasty, and best of all, simple. And as always, can be made in a toaster oven if needed! I make these with a classic, easy tomato sauce, so any homemade sauce will do! —Hotplate Gourmet

In This Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with your hands. Form into golf ball sized meatballs and set in the baking pan about a 1/2 inch apart.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the tops are crusty and they are cooked through.
Warm up the tomato sauce in a Dutch Oven or sauce pan, and place the cooked meatballs in the sauce for about 10 minutes before ready to serve over the sauteed spinach.
