I’m really trying to plan our meals ahead of time, or at least avoid any repeat grocery trips during the week. So I’m having to make sure to use everything I have on hand. Last week I had lots planned (roast, ham, and chicken), but this week has been a little less organized. I made Enchiladas on Saturday, spaghetti last night (had to make homemade spaghetti sauce because I didn’t have any…recipe to come), and tonight I thought I’d make some meatballs. It’s been a while and they sounded pretty yummy.
I headed to Allrecipes and looked through a couple recipes. I actually combined two different recipes and they turned out soooo good!
First – Meatball Nirvana
1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
3/4 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp red pepper flakes
dash hot sauce (frank’s, tabasco, etc.)
1 1/2 Tbsp worcestershire
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs (I used gluten free)
Mix well and roll into 1- 1 1/2″ meatballs and cook on 400 for 20-25 minutes.
Then I used the Cocktail Meatball III Recipe for the sauce:
1 bottle of ketchup
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp worcestershire
**I also added some chili sauce and more brown sugar and worcestershire to taste. I had some leftover pineapple chunks in juice in the fridge and threw that in too just to use it up**
I served over plain rice and it was soooo yummy! These meatballs stayed together so well (never happens to me) and were absolutely delicious!
