I don`t know about Homemade ones, but if you buy the Canned meatballs, do NOT microwave them, they Will explode!

For regular meatballs I always shallow fry in a skillet. (the meatballs shouldn't be too large, slightly smaller than a ping pong ball at the most) I like the crisp and savoury texture on the outside

I am also fond of wrapping brussell sprouts (precooked al dente) inside the meatballs, then I bake it in the oven, covered with tomato based sauce and then cover the baking dish with a foil. Moister, softer effect is nicer on stuffed meatballs like this.

Making meatballs for tonight's spaghetti, but forgot how long and at what temp to use when cooking them in oven.

I like to cook them in the microwave. Oven is good too, but it hurts my back to bend over and check them.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I brown mine in a saute pan with oil. When they are a nice dark brown all over they go into the sauce.

I brown mine in the oven, using a half sheet pan and a cake rack to keep them up out of their fat. Much less mess and less fat than doing them in a pan on top the stove.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
