Submitted by: AMANDAJOY123

Introduction

These are large meatballs, but you can make them smaller and eat less of them to save on calories, they freeze really well. These are large meatballs, but you can make them smaller and eat less of them to save on calories, they freeze really well.
Number of Servings: 13

Ingredients

    3 pounds ground beef
    half onion
    8 cloves garlic
    2 eggs
    1 - 2 T Milk
    1/2 C Italian Bread Crumbs
    1/2 C Parmesan Cheese
    Italian Herbs to taste
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Put meat in big bowl, add everything else. Mix with hands until just combined. Using cookie scoop make into meat balls. This freezes really well. I use about a 2 T cookie scoop and 2 meatballs equals 1 of my servings.
To cook you can bake them in sauce or cook in pan and add sauce and let simmer in sauce until cooked through.
Yeah these aren't as low in calories, but you can make them with lower fat ground beef or with lean ground turkey or pork.
