I started my search for a meatball recipe to compliment my Grandma's meat sauce
This meatball recipe is adapted from The Food in my Beard's Meatball Recipe

1 lb ground beef 
1 lb ground turkey 
4 large cloves of garlic
 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese  
handful of parsley 
1 egg 
1/3 loaf of french bread 
1/2- 1 cup water   
salt (to taste)
 pepper (to taste) 
olive oil

Begin chopping your Garlic and Parsley.

Grate Parmesan cheese. check. 
Grate more Parmesan cheese to replace what boyfriend eats, check.

Add garlic, parsley, Parmesan, egg, salt and pepper to your ground beef and ground turkey.

 Add your French Bread bread crumbs and water and start mixing! (Easiest way to do this is to use stale bread, chop it up in your food processor and add to the meatballs.) Mine came apart pretty easy without using my food processor. Add water as you go so you don't add too much.

 Your mixture should look somewhat like this:

  Put Mixture in the fridge for 20-30 minutes. This will help your meatballs set later when cooking them.

I had a helper supervisor.  

Heat up olive oil in your pan.

 Cook meatballs on medium until browned, then lower heat to medium-low and cover with lid so they cook all the way through.

 Serve meatballs on top of spaghetti noodles with Grandma's Meat Sauce.

And of course top it with more freshly grated Parmesan cheese. 

Freeze any unused meatballs for a rainy day!
