Linda's Meatballs (Leaner Version)

Submitted by: LINDAJ0621

Introduction

You can omit the olive oil for the pan browning and bake them in the oven instead. These meatballs can be made in large (double or triple) batches and frozen for later use. Just pop them into your sauce to heat them through or defrost in the microwave to use in other recipes. You can omit the olive oil for the pan browning and bake them in the oven instead.

Ingredients

    1 lb. lean ground beef
    1/4 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
    1 large egg
    2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup chopped fresh flat parsley
    2 cloves crushed, minced garlic
    salt & pepper to taste
    2 Tbsp. olive oil

Tips

If the meatballs seem too dry, you can add a little water while mixing them. If they seem a little wet, you can add a little more bread crumbs.


Directions

Combine all ingredients except the olive oil in a large bowl and mix by hand. Moisten hands first with water and do not over mix. Using ice cream scoop to keep meatballs even in size, measure out and roll gently into a ball. Place non stick skillet on stove and heat to about medium/medium high. Add olive oil to pan then add meatballs. Turn while cooking to brown evenly on all sides.

Serving Size: Makes about 12 meatballs.

Number of Servings: 12

  • Your recipe is very similar to mine. I always bake them on the broiler pan in my oven so the grease drips down. I line the broiler pan with foil to make easy cleanup, and usually make 3-4 pounds at a time because it's a lot of work. - 5/13/12
