Basic meatballs


26-30 meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 large egg
1⁄4 cup onion, finely chopped
1⁄3 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs or 1⁄3 cup old fashioned oats
1⁄4 cup milk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
salt, to taste
fresh ground black pepper, to taste


Mix ground beef, egg, onion, breadcrumbs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste together.
Shape mixture by Tablespoonfuls into 1-1/2-inch balls.
Place the meatballs in a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch or 15-1/2×9-1/2×1-inch baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven until light brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Drain off any excess fat.
Use meatballs as desired.

Cover and allow meatballs to cool slightly before freezing. No special equipment is needed in the preparation for freezing. Ziplock bags work fine for me. Allow meatballs to thaw about 30 minutes at room temperature before using. Use as desired with your favorite recipes.
