Oven Baked Meatballs

These baked meatballs 
save time and can be frozen
 and used later in a variety
of dishes. I make a large
batch and use them for
different meals. 


1 lb ground beef
1 large egg
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs 
(or soda crackers crushed up)
1/2 onion grated
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp beef or steak seasoning
1 tbsp ketchup 

Preheat Oven to 350deg.F

Crack egg into a large mixing
 bowl and whisk until blended.
Add the meat and the
 remaining ingredients.
Mix to combine everything.

Scoop out the meat with a small 
ice cream scoop or a large spoon,
and with your hands roll into balls. 
Place on a baking sheet.

Bake approximately 30 minutes.
(Optional) turn after 1/2 way done.

I adapted this recipe from
on her Cheesy Meat Balls.

Served with pasta
For a quick meal, 
I used a bottled spaghetti
sauce and added cheddar
 and Parmesan cheese.

Tastes great, simmered 
with brown gravy, served
with vegetables.

 I double the recipe to make
 a larger batch, using 2lbs. of beef. 
Sometimes I use 1/2beef and 1/2pork.

I also make Swedish Meat Balls
My favourite dish each time
we go to Ikea.
