Should you brown meatballs before baking?
You can brown them in the oven. Or you can skip browning altogether and put the raw meatballs straight into the sauce to cook. Baking them on a rack set over a baking pan ensures even cooking, and using your oven’s convection setting (if you have one ) yields nicely browned surfaces.
Is it better to cook meatballs on the stove or in the oven?
Baking them gives the meatballs a little more flavor without additional oil since you are searing the outside under the broiler in your oven. Just make sure you bake them on a really heavy-duty baking sheet like this one.

What do eggs do in meatballs?
Eggs are not a source of moisture! They’re in the meatball mix to bind the meat, breadcrumbs, cheese, and herbs. The eggs will cook and make the meatballs dense and spongy–you want light, airy meatballs.
At what temperature are meatballs done?
Use an instant read thermometer to confirm meatballs are fully cooked. (160° F internal temperature )
How do you tell if baked meatballs are done?
Broil the meatballs on a rimmed baking sheet for 20 to 25 minutes, or roast at 400°F for 25 to 30 minutes. (Watch closely if making meatballs made with lean meat.) The meatballs are done when cooked through, the outsides are browned, and they register 165°F in the middle on an instant-read thermometer.
Do you cook meatballs before you put them in the sauce?
Do You Put Raw Meatballs in Sauce to Cook? Although you can, I recommend browning the meatballs in a skillet with a little olive oil first. This creates a nice texture on the outside of the meatball, while allowing the middle to remain tender and juicy as it finishes cooking in the tomato sauce.
How long should I cook raw meatballs in sauce?
How do you cook raw meatballs in sauce? Carefully drop each meatball into the simmering sauce, cover the saucepan, and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Now that the meatballs have set, gently stir them, cover, and continue to simmer for 35 minutes. Remove the lid and simmer for 5 minutes more.

Should you roll meatballs in flour?
The way you cook the meatballs also can play a role in how well they hold together. Once I rolled the meatballs for today’s recipe, I gave them another chill in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Bastianich recommends giving the meatballs a little dusting of flour before adding them to the oil in the skillet.
Should I put milk in my meatballs?
Add Milk for Moisture A little bit of milk will add moisture to your meatballs. (Many people think it’s the eggs that add the moisture, but their role is to bind the meat, breadcrumbs, cheese and herbs.)
What happens if you put too much egg in meatballs?
Too much egg, therefore, is not a good thing. It will make your meatballs spongy and over-absorbent (in a bad way), so that they run a high risk of being soggy and too heavy. As a general rule of thumb, one to two eggs per pound of meat should do the trick.
