Pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 400°F, then broil them for another 5-10 minutes to make sure they get that deliciously crispy crust like pan frying gives them. Baking them gives the meatballs a little more flavor without additional oil since you are searing the outside under the broiler in your oven.
Should meatballs be cooked before putting in sauce?
