Meat Balls

My sister made these the day we cooked together

You need 2 lbs of ground beef, 1 C of bread crumbs, 2 large eggs, 1/3 C of milk, 1 t. dried onion powder, 1 t. dried basil, 1 t. salt, 1/2 t pepper, Preheat the oven to 375F

Adding the bread crumbs to the meat

Mixing it all together

Take a rounded tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball with your hands. If you have a broiler pan use that. When I made them at home I used a cookie sheet covered with foil (for easier clean up). Bake the meatballs until brown, 30-40 minutes. Serve at once or cool and freeze for later.

I used all of the ones we made together and made more later. They are great to freeze into the portion size you need and have on hand in the freezer for a quick filling meal. When you want to use them heat them on the stove with pasta sauce and serve with whole wheat pasta.
