Re: Need a good meatball recipe!

ground beef, half an onion diced, 1 egg, 1-2 cups of bread crumbs, italian spices, and about 1/2 cup ketchup. (I don't ever measure mine, just mix until its the desired consistency)

Then I form into meatballs and bake in a muffin tin (12 muffin tin for JUMBO meatballs, 24 muffin tin for regular meatballs) 375 for about 15 minutes

yum!! Thats sounds good! I wonder if adding some fresh cilantro would work with it?

I'd go for it - my kids and DH have an aversion to all things green - lol - so I don't get to experiment much in that sense

I do a similar recipe- but instead of ketchup I use milk and Worcestershire sauce. I do the ketchup for burgers and meatloaf though.

Re: Need a good meatball recipe!

I used this recipe the first time I made meatballs, and they were gobbled up by kiddos and DH, who I didn't think even liked meatballs!

I cooked them in the oven, because I was afraid some wouldn't cook through in the sauce. Just added them to the sauce after cooking, and they were just great. I did try making them with beef and sausage one time, and determined nobody in the family likes sausage in their meatballs

Re: Need a good meatball recipe!

I usually start by putting bread crumbs in a bowl and adding few tablespoons of milk to cover. Let it soak. Then add ground beef, spices, egg. I don't chop the onion, but rather grate it - I find it makes meatballs softer and moist. I also like to add smashed black beans to the mix - that makes meatballs even more moist and adds healthy element :-) Mix all together and form meatballs either by hand or with ice-cream scoop. I usually fry them in the pan on one side for a few minutes, then turn over for a few minutes, then add a bit of water and cover and let cook on medium heat for another 5-10 mins. You can also just put them in teh oven and bake for 15 mins or so depending on the size.
