Makes: 8 servings (3 meatballs)
Total Cost: $$$$

Make your own meatballs to use now or freeze them for a quick dinner at another time.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef, 90% lean (or ground turkey)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk, 1% (or non-fat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Directions

1. Mix all ingredients, shape into balls (about 24 meatballs)

2. Arrange on baking sheets that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

3. Bake at 425°F for 12-15 minutes. It is best to use a food safety thermometer to check for doneness (it should read 160°F for ground beef and 165°F for ground turkey).

4. If meatballs are being saved for future use, chill rapidly; package in amounts needed per meal and freeze immediately.
