The Best Homemade Meatballs-shared from Family Fun magazine
3 lbs ground meat(sug. turkey, beef, and pork)
1 10 oz pkg frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and drained well(omitted I had none!)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese(omitted, as I ran out!)
3 large eggs, beaten
2 tbsp italian seasoning
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup breadcrumbs or panko
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients throughly but do not over mix. Pinch off a tsp at a time...or I acutally use my small cookie scoop to get the same amount and then I roll them. Place on rimmed cooked sheet. Bake for 20-25 mins until they are browned and cooked through. **Mine only took about 15 mins because they were smaller.
**Usually when I make meatballs they seem dry and unflavorful...hence another reason I don't make them very often. I picked up the meatloaf mix at Bj's(which is a bulk food store) so I decided to make it all into meatballs and freeze them. These were awesome, tasty, and moist! They were even better the next day! My brother in law and sister in law loved them as well. We used them in meatball grinders(sub,s hoagies, or sandwiches!)
