  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all meatball ingredients. A stand mixer with an attached dough hook makes mixing easier. Shape into walnut-sized balls. You can use a 1 ½-inch cookie scoop to form the meatballs, which yields about 65. If you use your hands, you’ll end up with closer to 80.
  3. Place meatballs on greased 9-by-13-inch pans, or multiple smaller pans, for either baking or freezing.
  4. Just before baking, combine sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until sugar dissolves.
  5. Pour sauce over meatballs. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
