Broiled Meatballs

Made with Italian Sausage and Ground Beef.
This couldn't be any easier to put together.
You form the meatballs and broil them before
letting them simmer in a big pot of tomato sauce.
These are a little sweeter than regular beef meatballs.
Good tasting and they go well with any cooked pasta.
I like to make meatball grinders using these.

1 large egg
1 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 pound ground mild Italian sausage
1 pound ground beef 85/15
2 cans crushed tomato sauce
1 small hot cherry pepper

Combine egg and bread crumbs in a mixing bowl.
Add in sausage and mix to combine,
add in ground beef, mix to combine.
Use your hands to form meat mixture into
about 24 (1-1/2 ") sized meat balls.
Place on a baking sheet and place under broiler
for about 10 minutes until the top starts to brown.
Open canned tomato sauce and place in a large soup pot
on medium heat to heat up while meatballs broil.
Add in 1 small hot cherry pepper to tomato sauce.
Use tongs to turn the meatballs over and broil
for another 6 minutes until top side starts to brown.
Remove semi-cooked meatballs into tomato sauce
and let simmer on low heat for about 1 hour.
