Tasty Tuesday - Basic Meatballs



BASIC MEATBALLS

I have gathered a few different recipes and formed my own with them. Here are the meatballs I came up with that we just LOVE! (I usually make a big amount and freeze some and use only what I need in my dish! So this recipe is already doubled)

2 1/2 lbs. ground beef (You can use all pork or 1/2 beef and 1/2 pork too..I've made them with turkey burger too and they were delicious)

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 tsp garlic salt

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 box stuffing mix (has bread crumbs and seasonings all included!

2 Tbsp minced onion

3 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

Combine all ingredients and mix it together.. I use my hands, it’s easier to break up the meat and get it all mixed up well! Shape into 1 inch meatballs and place on a foil lined cookie sheet. Bake 7 minutes at 350*..If freezing..let cool freeze in a single layer, then you can transfer them to a freezer bag and put back in the freezer till you are ready for them!! If using immediately you can continue to cook them in the oven about another 5-8 minutes, or go ahead and add them to you dish..(ie..spaghetti sauce..they will continue to cook as your sauce cooks). We’ve eaten them on hoagie buns for meatball sandwiches, in spaghetti, in a sweet and sour sauce over rice, or just plain with a little barbecue sauce or ketchup, etc..the possibilities are endless and delicious! Let me know what you think of this recipe!
