Meatballs

Posted on: January 30, 2010

Eric started talking about his grandmother’s meatballs today and while unfortunately these are not hers, I figured it would be a good way to use up the parsley I bought earlier in the week.  We ate some for dinner (Eric put his in barbecue sauce; I used chili sauce) and froze the rest to use in spaghetti on a lazy day.

Ingredients
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small onion, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 pound ground beef
1.24 pound package of mild Italian sausage, casings removed
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions
Heat oil in a small frying pan and add onion and garlic. Cook until translucent and let cool.

Combine beef and sausage and mix together with your hands to combine the two meats. Add the remaining ingredients and mix again with your hands.

Using a medium sized cookie scoop (or a Tablespoon measure) portion out meat and roll into balls. Place balls on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until cooked through.

Place meatballs on to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Add to sauce if desired or let cool and freeze until ready to use. Frozen meatballs can be heated on the stove in your favorite sauce for 15-20 minutes.
