Skillet Meatballs

Skillet Meatballs - Rebekah and her Ramblings. An easy and warm weeknight dinner!The weather seems to have finally cooled off for real this time and I am enjoying driving around with my moon roof open! Another great thing about the weather is the awesome sales H-E-B has for some different foods than a lot of the ones I’ve been eating lately. They have been running a lot of sales on meatballs lately and I have taken advantage of it twice. I made some BBQ ones with a homemade sauce when I made a bunch of snacky foods for a great football weekend, but this week, I made skillet meatballs in a marinara sauce. These are nice and delicious by themselves, but would be good on a sub sandwich if you’re into that. You could also make your own homemade meatballs but if you wanna cheat like I did, and want to whip up dinner in a flash, go for the premade route 🙂 Plus, those meatballs were gluten free, SO MUCH YES. I also left a lot up to you guys for this recipe because I think Italian food is more personal preference than any other kind – the best thing about cooking is that you can experiment and find what you like the most

Skillet Meatballs

Serves: 2 (for dinner)                       Total Time: 20 minutes

Skillet Meatballs - Rebekah and her Ramblings. An easy and warm weeknight dinner!What you need:

  • about 15 meatballs (I thawed H-E-B’s premade homestyle small package overnight)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • seasonings for the sauce – I used garlic salt, thyme, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, at least 1/2 teaspoon of each
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2% milk okay)
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese (reduced fat okay)


  • Cut your meatballs in half and place cut side down in a skillet
  • Cook over medium heat until the meatballs are warmed through and start to really brown
  • In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce with your seasonings and mix thoroughly
  • Pour the sauce over the meatballs and toss well
  • Simmer until sauce is heated and meatballs are very warm
  • Sprinkle the cheeses over the meatballs and broil in the oven on high for about 2-3 minutes or the cheese is brown and melty
