You need 1.5 to 2 lbs of meat (I use turkey but you can use pork/ beef/ chicken or do half and half) to make enough for 2 meals. I make 1/2 to eat and freeze half in the sauce, so it's another meal ready to go.
1 lrg egg
1-2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 cup bread crumbs
fresh garlic, minced
onion powder (works better than fresh onion, imo)
approx. 1 tsp pepper
1-2 tsp salt
1 tbs dried oregano
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tbs dreid basil
1 tbs cumin
1 tbs chili powder
Preheat oven to 350
Parchment paper line a baking tray
Toss together in a bowl - mix really well.
Form into small balls, whatever size you like really. I like them about 1" but Beca makes hers smaller. Both are delish!
Bake at 350 for 15-20 min. Turn meatballs. Bake 15-20 min. Turn. Finish bake until they are browned all over and smell delicious
I usually use a big pot of red sauce (sauteed onion/garlic, 28 oz. diced tomato, 28 oz tomato sauce, 14 oz crushed tomato, 1 sm. can tomato paste, 1 cup water, same spices as above in appropriate amounts for size of sauce - you can also throw in some tofu/spinich creamed in the blender), but sometimes I change up w/a pesto or a non-dairy cream sauce. Depends on what we've had for dinner recently, and what else is going on. ENJOY!
