The Secret to Delicious Meatballs

I finally learned the secret of delicious meatballs!  I have the recipe and directions!!

Meatballs are a very versatile item to have in the freezer.  They can be tossed into casseroles, made into Italian meatballs subs, or my favorite…Sweet and Sour Meatballs!!

Best of all, I finally learned how to make tender, juicy meatballs with a recipe that’s large enough to have lots left over for another meal (or two)!

My recipe is very basic, but you can add whatever spices you want to change the flavor according to how you are going to use them.  Love how meatballs are so versatile!

Baked Meatball Recipe

3 pounds ground beef

2 eggs

1 – 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs (your own of course)

Salt and pepper to taste

Chopped onions or onion powder (optional)

Mouth-Watering Meatballs

Mix all ingredients by hand until mixed well.  Gently form balls about 1″ across.  Place on a jelly roll pan that has been lined with aluminum foil.  Bake for about 1/2 hour.  Test to make sure they are done.  That’s it!!

Forming loosely packed meatballs keeps them tender and baking them makes them juicy!  They will melt in your mouth!

Whatever is left after your meal can be taken off the aluminum foil and placed directly on the jelly roll pan and popped into the freezer.

The meatballs will freeze separately and you can transfer them to a freezer bag and take as many as you need the next time you want meatballs!  Easy peasy!

BENEFITS:

  • Homemade meatballs that you can season as you like
  • Easy meals that are waiting in the freezer
  • Saving money

Bags of ready to eat meatballs average $20.00 for three pounds.  On sale, I can buy hamburger for $1.99 / pound, plus a little extra for bread crumbs, eggs and onions.  If we eat a meatball meal once a month, that’s a savings of about $17.50 per month, x 12 months = $210.00 annually.

MONEY SAVED:  $210.00!!
