Awwwww Meatballs! I love em. My family loves em. Honestly how could you not?! I love taking the time to make fresh home made ones. You can mix them in with Spaghetti sauce, or serve them with Mac n Cheese! The possibilities are endless.

This is the easiest recipe in the world. You can also improvise also with whatever you have in your cupboards. This is the basics.

1lb of ground pork
2 large eggs
1/2 cups of bread crumbs
1 1/2 packages of Ritz crackers
1 Tbsp of Garlic (if you want)
Salt and pepper (about a tsp each)

Put the pork and the bread crumbs in a bowl. Then crunch up the Ritz crackers over the top.
Then add the eggs and the garlic and spices.

Knead the mixture together with your hands. It should feel lightly slimy (because of the two eggs). If you would like to add a couple more crackers you can, but the sliminess is good for moisture!

Preheat Oven to 350°
Next roll out 1" balls of meat! The kids LOVE to do this. Ok, well they love to do the first 2, then they are over it and you are stuck doing the rest. (Also, maybe one day I should buy new cookie sheets. Ha, these are looking there age.)

Cook on 350° for 50-60 minutes. Then they will look like these beautiful balls!
Take them off the pan and place on a plate with a paper towel. Then you can use them for whatever! I usually freeze most of them. Then I can take them out as needed. Perfect for the meal night you do not want to get to intense.
