Italian Meatballs Recipe from Tony's Town Square (Magic Kingdom)

Tony's Town Square in Magic Kingdom is known for its "Lady & the Tramp" themed motif.
There is even a large statue of the canine couple in the center of the restaurant.
But did you know the location is also known for its delicious meatballs?
Well, if you've never tasted them, then you don't know what you're missing.
The good news is that now you can make them in your very own kitchen
following this incredibly easy recipe!!

Thanks for watching!!!

*makes 40 (golf ball-size) meatballs


1 lb. lean ground beef
1 lb. Italian sausage (casings removed)
1/4 cup onions, minced
1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 whole egg
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 350(F) degrees.

Place ground beef and sausage into a large bowl. Add all other ingredients. Mix well with hands, forming into a large ball. Cover with plastic wrap and set in fridge for 1 hour.

Remove from fridge and form into 40 (golf ball-size) balls. Place 1-inch apart on a foil-lined baking sheet. Set in oven to bake for 15-20 minutes at 350-degrees or until firm and no longer pink in the middle.

Serve over spaghetti or in a hoagie or eat as is. They're delicious!!!


  1. Thank you so much for the recipe! I made these last night and they were a huge hit! The only thing I did different was leave out the cheese and made my own bread crumbs due to food allergies. These went perfect with some pasta. Thanks again.

    1. You're very welcome! I'm so glad to hear that your family liked them! It's also great to hear that you were able to customize them. I'm sure that will help other readers with food allergies. Thanks for commenting. :)

  2. can you use milk instead of water?
    would it make a difference in the recipe?
    please let me know. my e-mail is midnight0675@frontier.com

  3. Greetings, I was noticing that you added some dry herbs. Would it be possible to add fresh ones as well? Or, do you suggest just to stick with the dry ones? Please advise. Thanks

  4. This is now our staple meatball recipe--the entire family adores it, and I've made this recipe many times. In fact, it's spaghetti and meatball night tonight!
