How to Make My Homemade Spaghetti and Meatballs with Homemade Garlic Cathead Biscuits
My Homemade Spagheti and Meatballs with My Homemade Garlic Cathead Biscuits
My homemade spaghetti and meatballs
Hi everyone, it's me again with another fabulous recipe for you to try with your family and friends! It's my homemade spaghetti and meatballs with garlic cathead biscuits! Cathead is just a country term because of the size and shape of these homemade biscuits (they resemble the size and shape of a cat head). Sounds weird but it is something I grew up eating and hearing.
Anyway let's get started!

Homemade Spaghetti and Meatballs Recipe
2 lg. cans your favorite spaghetti sauce
2 sm. cans tomato sauce
Oregano and basil
2 lbs. ground beef or chuck

3 to 4 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
1 box spaghetti pasta
Begin by mixing ground meat, bread crumbs, oregano, basil, egg, salt and pepper. Form into several 1 1/2 inch balls. Place meatballs on cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
Next place about 2 tbls. olive oil in a large skillet and saute onion until transluscent (about 7 minutes). Add garlic and saute another 2 minutes. Pour in spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, oregano and basil (about 1 tsp each). Mix all well and turn heat to medium low while stirring every 5 minutes or so. When meatballs are done, remove them from oven and place into sauce. Continue cooking sauce and meatballs for about 2 more hours very low and slow to allow flavors to blend! This step is definitely worth it! Boil your favorite spaghetti pasta and drain. Top with sauce and meatballs! I like to serve this with Tabasco and my homemade garlic cathead biscuits (reicpe follows)!
