Meatballs

I saw this recipe in my files tonight and it made me smile. I was reminded of when I was pregnant with my first child and trying to cook for my husband and I while being extremely nauseated. Even on a good day when the nausea had passed, I would have trouble cooking certain foods. Ground beef was one of them. I could never have made Meatballs, chili, taco meat filling or spaghetti sauce back then!

Meatballs

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 t ground black pepper
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
4 slices bread, torn and pinched into small bits
1/4 c milk
1/3 c Italian flavored breadcrumbs
1/4 c fresh parsley OR 2 TB. dried parsley flakes
2 T minced dehydrated garlic powder
1-2 T minced onions
Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl mix all ingredients well. Shape into balls approximately 2" in size, dividing the raw meatballs evenly on cookie sheets. Fill pans with about 1/2 " water then carefully place the pans in preheated oven and bake for about 45 Minutes. Drain liquid out of pans. Makes approximately 35-40 meatballs. Great to freeze half and use the other half with your favorite sauce.
