Maggiano’s Meatball Recipe (Copycat)

Maggiano’s Meatball Recipe (Copycat)

  • Author: Mortadella Head



2 lbs ground 80/20 beef

5 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic

2 tablespoon chopped parsley

2 teaspoons black pepper freshly ground

2 whole eggs

1 cup plain bread crumbs

1 cup of whole milk

1 cup grated Romano cheese or parmesan cheese


  1. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl. Use your hands so you can really get everything incorporated.
  2. Form the meatballs with your hands. Try to get the meatballs about the size of a golf ball. I think that size is perfect for soaking up the sauce and staying nice and moist. 
  3. Place the meatballs on an oiled baking sheet and place in a 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes. 
  4. Remove them from the oven and allow them to rest for another 15 minutes. 
  5. Place the meatballs in a pot of marinara sauce and let them simmer for about 20 minutes.
  6. Serve the meatballs with your favorite pasta.
