Tonight I finally decided to make some meatballs for dinner. I actually made a double batch so I could freeze some for a later meal. But, of course, my little monkeys devoured the entire double batch in one sitting. Luckily they are really simple to make, so making another batch will be a piece of cake.
1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
2 Tbsp bread crumbs (I used Ener-G brown rice bread)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 c dairy-free milk
1 "egg" (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer)
Preheat oven to 350º. Mix all ingredients together and form into balls (about 1" in diameter). Place in a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
I simmered the cooked meatballs in some store-bought spaghetti sauce for about 10 minutes then served it on a bun to make a meatball sandwich. Next time I'm planning to make some homemade sauce and let the meatballs simmer for a bit longer to really absorb the tomato flavor. Stay tuned for that recipe.
