Delicious Italian Meatballs !!

cups123 | Mar 24, 200907:12 AM     52

I wanted to ask everyones advice on how to make italian meatballs. I have been tampering w recipes for some time now but can never get that delicious, perfectly flavored meatball (like the type you could put into a meatball sub). I wanted to know if anyone has any tricks or suggestions?

I used to use beef but found that it made an enormous difference when I mixed it w pork - have others found the same? Much more flavor. I add bread crumbs, an egg (not sure if I should though), onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt/pepper, italian herbs.

What else can I try? Is sauteing fresh onions and garlic and then folding it in to meat mixture worth it? I'm also going to try a turkey-pork mix to see how that goes.
