Meat balls anyone, I make these plain very easy to make meatballs, I make enough so that I can freeze some. You can use these particular Meatballs for Spaghetti and Meat Balls, Sweet and Sour Meat Balls, or BBQ Meatballs.. It is all in the SAUCE. This time around I made them and then used up some Spaghetti Sauce.
What you will need
1 lb Ground Beef ( I use a medium when making these meatballs only for the fact that I find it easier for the kids to eat them they turn out softer. I am always worried about the kids choking.. They turn out great with Lean Ground Beef as well, just my preference.)
1 Egg (large)
1 large onion diced
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1/4 cup Milk (we use 2% but whole milk or skim milk will be fine
Salt and pepper A shake and a Dash!!
Mix it up... I just use my hands to mush it together. Get it all mixed up
Then you are ready to form your Meat Balls. make them what ever size you prefer, just try to keep them uniform in size , we are going to bake these guys and we want them to cook evenly.
WASH HANDS.. you can never wash your hands enough when you are handling any raw meat, Hot water and soap...Scrub em up!!!
Bake Meat Balls at 325 degrees, for about 20 min. Till they are a nice brown toasty colour. careful not to OVERCOOK... Take em out and you can put them on a cooling rack let em cool and Freeze them to use later. Keep some out for Dinner tonight we are having Spaghetti and Meatballs. I had a tomato base Sauce on hand and I added meatballs and simmered for about 1 1/2 and away we go, Cook some spaghetti and Voila.. Dinner!

It is great to have these in the freezer, very easy to come home and have a delicious meal ready in no time, also great to take Sweet and Sour meatballs to a Potluck dinner.
