 Ingredients List

  • ~~ Meatballs ~~
  • 1 pound ground lean beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 3/4 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup oil (for frying)
  • ~~ Meatball casserole ~~
  • 20-25 meatballs
  • 1 jar (24-26 oz) marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used Kraft finely shredded triple cheddar cheese)
  • 10-12 frozen Grands!® Frozen Mini Buttermilk Biscuits


To make the meatballs

In a bowl, add all the ingredients and with a wooden spoon (or ever better with your hands) squish well and combined.

Take small pieces of the mixture and shape the balls into desired size. I prefer them the size of a walnut. The recipe yields 50-55 meatballs.

Place the meatballs on a cookie sheet topped with parchment paper. Once all the meatballs are shaped, place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 20 minutes or until frozen enough to handle.

Remove the meatballs from the cookie sheet and place them in a freezer safe ziplock bag.

Use as needed.

To cook the meatballs, heat about 1/4 cup of oil in a medium large frying pan. Add the meatballs and cook over medium heat for few minutes, tossing the meatballs to brown on all sides.

Remove from the saucepan on paper towels.

To make the meatball casserole.

Heat the oven to 350F.

Place 20-25 fried meatballs in a casserole dish.

Pour the marinara sauce over the meatballs.

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the marinara sauce.

Slice the frozen biscuits in half and top the casserole with them.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly on the edges and the biscuits are golden brown.

Serve warm with more grated cheese on top.
