How Long to Cook Meatballs
It doesn't take long to cook your own meatballs, and it can add a tasty touch to your pasta nights! The amount of time it will take to cook your meatballs depends on what temperature you set your oven to, but overall, it doesn't take long for them to be fully cooked:
- 350 degrees: 25 to 30 minutes
- 375 degrees: 20 to 25 minutes
- 450 degrees: 15 to 20 minutes
The best way to tell whether or not your meatballs are fully cooked is to use a meat thermometer and stick it into the center of the meatball. If it's 160 degrees or higher then it's fully cooked which means there will be no more pink inside. You could also touch one of them to see if it's fully cooked, it should be firm to the touch if it's done.
