So a while back, I posted that I was going to start testing recipes for this catering gig I had coming up in August. Fast forward to August- didn't practice anything since. So, I'm going to be baking up a storm these next two weeks, and I'll be posting the fruits of my labors, sans my lengthy stories.
Ok, maybe a few short sentences to document how this all went down.
So on Sunday I made over 200 meatballs. Holy freaking cow- that was a lot of meatballs. Thank goodness for the husband, who stepped up and help me roll these suckers out, or I might still be up in my kitchen up to my elbows in raw hamburger.
Yeah, if that mental image doesn't make you hungry, I don't know what will.
So here's the recipe- SUPER simple and easy and darned delicious.
Recipe from http://www.food.com/recipe/authentic-italian-meatballs-92095
I made 10 recipes resulting in about 200 meatballs
1 lb ground beef (I used 85% lean)
1/4 cup milk (I used whole milk)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 jar of Pasta Sauce
Preheat your oven to 350.
Mix all of your ingredients by hand in a large bowl until fully combined. Roll one ounce sections into balls, and place on a cookie sheet (with sides) lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for about 20 min, or internal temperate reads 160.
Serve in a crock pot with sauce.
