I don’t know of many people who would turn away comfort food when it gets cold outside. Heck I like comfort food anytime really. It’s been so cold here in these parts lately that venturing outside is very short lived.
I like to bake meatballs in the oven at 350F till they are nice and brown. As for the sauce, I make mine by taking a good can of crushed tomatoes and add olive oil, herbs (that I have on hand) garlic and let it slow cook on top of the stove, makes the whole house smell wonderful! Once the sauce and meatballs are done I mix them together and then back into the oven they go at 350F for about 15 minutes just enough for everything to get happy. I serve that with a nice leafy green salad.
For the meatballs you’ll need:
1 lb. of hamburger
1 lb. of Mild Italian sausage
1 teaspoon of basil, garlic and Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper as you like
Mix together well and roll into meatballs whatever size you prefer then place into a baking dish and bake at 350F for about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile on top of the stove use a good sized sauce pan into the pan pour 2- 28 oz. cans of a good crushed tomato. Into the sauce put 1 teaspoon of basil, garlic and olive oil. You can always add other herbs that you like. I also add about 2 Tablespoons of whatever red wine I have at the house. And let this simmer away.
