Meatball Recipe

This is more of a recipe that is good for fall and winter, but we've been dying for this lately, so I made some meatballs today. There aren't many ingredients, they are pretty easy to make.

1 pound hamburg
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs (we use Progresso)
1 tsp grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs
1/2 tsp pepper
Lots and lots of pasta sauce. (You won't find any home made sauce recipes on this site, har har. I'm too lazy for that. I cheated and used a brand from a jar.)

Mix the meat and all the ingredients except the sauce together. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to make this easier.
Roll into balls, these are about 1 1/2" in case anyone is curious. Needless to say, they don't have to look perfect.
Brown meatballs in a skillet. They just need to be partially browned/cooked, not cooked all the way through. A little pink is ok. We just shove them around the skillet with a spatula so they don't rest in one place for too long.

Plop the meatballs into a crock pot with plenty of sauce. Cook on high for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so. Then set to low and cook for about 2 or 3 more hours. Stir about every 30 minutes so the meatballs don't stick to the crock pot.
Test a meatball on a plate, and try not to devour them all before supper time. Serve with pasta, or in sub rolls. Yum!
