Recipe #199: Meatballs

A friend shared this recipe with me, and I was excited to make it!  All this cooking and experimenting, and I hadn't made yet spaghetti and meatballs.  Shame!  But here's a delicious and really simple recipe.  I used whole grain spaghetti, as well as pasta sauce made in Cleveland's own Little Italy!  This is another from allrecipes.com.


1lb extra lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 small onion, diced (next time, I'll cut mine much smaller)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 dash (or more!) hot pepper sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I only had plain)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Place the beef into a mixing bowl, and season with salt, onion, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, oregano, red pepper flakes, hot pepper sauce, and Worcestershire sauce; mix well.  Add the milk, Parmesan cheese, and bread crumbs.  Mix until evenly blended, then form into 1 1/2 inch meatballs, and place into a baking sheet.  (I made about 15 meatballs with this)

Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes.
