Spectacular Meatballs

What equipment you need:

Bowl large enough to put your ingredients into

A chopping board

A sharp knife

A cookie/shallow pan

Freezer bags (Believe me you’ll want to make enough for a number of our recipes)

What ingredients you need:

Ground beef, turkey, chicken or pork or a mixture for the more adventurous!

One onion – I prefer the white or red ones

One egg per lb or kg of meat

Crackers or stale bread

Mustard

Ketchup

Salt

Pepper

Other spices optional: Italian seasoning

How to make it:

  • Wash your hands and clean your prep area.
  • Turn oven onto 350 F
  • Place your meat in a large bowl
  • Cut off one end of the onion, leaving the bulb end in tact to prevent tearing up when you chop the onion or turn on your back stove element and chop your onions on front, turned off, element to avoid tears all together.  Chop onion finely.
  • Add egg(s), chopped onion, some crackers or stale bread, a squirt of mustard and ketchup or about a 1/4 cup, salt, pepper and any other optional spices.
  • Mix the ingredients together and form into small meat balls.
  • Put aluminum foil on the baking dish and ad the meat balls in rows.
  • Put into oven for 45 minutes (depends on your oven.  May need longer or shorter times), turning at about 20 minutes of cooking time.
  • Remove from oven and cut one meat ball open to ensure that it is done.
  • When completely cooked, remove from oven and allow to completely cool.
  • Put your cooled, cooked meat balls in the storage bags to freeze or make one of our other recipes calling for these meatballs.
  • Pat yourself on the back.  You did it!
