Spicy Italian Meatballs for Two

Have you ever wanted to impress someone by cooking a romantic meal to show them your culinary skills? I know I have. This recipe is easy enough for anyone, beginner or experienced. I made these for the first time tonight and my wife loved them, so I decided to record my measurements for y'all. They pack a little bit of heat, but not too much where you need to keep a glass of milk ready.

2 servings


  • 1 pound ground lean beef
  • 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons milk (any type)
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/8 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 5-6 drops siracha
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg

For the skillet:

  • 1 tablespoon oil


  1. In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients together.
  2. Shape mixture into small balls (about the size of a strawberry).
  3. Add oil to a skillet. Heat to a medium-low temperature.
  4. When the skillet is hot, add 5-6 meatballs at a time. They will cook quickly. You should hear them sizzling. Flip them over and then make sure each side is thoroughly cooked.
  5. Cut into one meatball to check that it is fully cooked. If not, either place it in the microwave to finish them off or return them to the skillet.
