so here's another not-really-a-recipe recipe for meatballs (which we used for meatball sandwiches). i guess you could call this "suggestions for when you were thinking about making meatballs...or you had too much ground beef already thawing and now you have to use it for something."
what you need:
ground beef (or ground turkey...but devin doesn't always fall for that. he's a beef guy.)
breadcrumbs--we've used bread butts and stale chips before. buying breadcrumbs is over-rated.
dried onion flakes (or chopped fresh onion if you're fancy!)
an egg (or a few?)
whatever else you feel like
what you do:
(start heating up your sauce in the crockpot while you prep the meatballs.)
add all the ingredients in a bowl, smoosh and mix thoroughly--you don't want the mixture TOO mushy, so add more breadcrumbs if you put too many eggs/too much milk in there.
form the meat into balls, and microwave them for about 1-2 minutes. rotate them, and then microwave them for another 1-2 mins.
stick them in the crockpot on high for 2-3 hours (or on low for 4-6), so the flavor from the sauce cooks into the meatballs.
get some amoroso rolls and serve up this family easy meal!
