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!
When we can't find peace in ourselves it is vain to look for it elsewhere.
