My Favorite Meatballs

The possibilities are endless for this tasty, low-carb recipe.  My kids eat them with pasta or in sandwiches, and my husband and I enjoy them plain or served over a pasta alternative like French-cut green beans or zucchini.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb bulk Italian sausage (we use Bob Evans)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 c Parmesan cheese, dry grated
  • 2 T dehydrated onions
  • 1 t dried Italian herb blend
  • 1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 can Hunt’s Roasted Garlic & Herb spaghetti sauce

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs.  Add Parmesan cheese, onions, dried herbs, and crushed red pepper flakes.  Combine with a fork.
  3. Add the ground meat to the egg mixture and combine with your hands until the egg mixture is well-incorporated.
  4. Form mix into ping-pong-ball-sized meatballs and place in a 13″x9″x2″ baking dish.
  5. Pour spaghetti sauce over the top of the meatballs and bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until meatballs reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
