Easy Meatballs!

MeatballsMy husband requested Spaghetti & Meatballs for dinner this last week, so I added it to the list. 🙂 Normally I buy meatballs because I’ve never had luck making them. But every time I look at the packaging they are full of preservatives, processed meat, and other items we choose to leave out of our diet, so I decided I’d try making them again. I typically fry them, but they end up falling apart, so this time I decided to bake them. Here is the recipe:

1 lb ground meat (I used beef, but it’ll also work with ground chicken or turkey)
1 large egg
2 TBSP water
1/2 c. bread crumbs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except for the beef. Once it has been mixed well, add in the meat. Mix with hands until all of it is well mixed. Using your hands, roll meat into 1 inch meatballs and place on a sided baking sheet. Cook at 350 for 25 minutes, or until they are no longer pink inside.
