    meatballs

    Units: US | Metric

      Mix ground beef, egg, onion, breadcrumbs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste together.
    2. 2
      Shape mixture by Tablespoonfuls into 1-1/2-inch balls.
    3. 3
      Place the meatballs in a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch or 15-1/2x9-1/2x1-inch baking dish.
    4. 4
      Bake, uncovered, in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven until light brown, about 20 to 25 minutes.
    5. 5
      Drain off any excess fat.

      FREEZING:.
    8. 8
      Cover and allow meatballs to cool slightly before freezing. No special equipment is needed in the preparation for freezing. Ziplock bags work fine for me. Allow meatballs to thaw about 30 minutes at room temperature before using. Use as desired with your favorite recipes.

      this recipe took no time at all..total of 20 min maybe. However it wasn't amazing..i think oven cooked meatballs taste dry. Regardless of the fact, on this particular day this easy recipe came in handy.

      This is an excellent basic meatball recipe. I left the onions out due to an onion-phobic teenage son, and added garlic powder to goose it up a little. I'm sure the addition of the onions would perk these up even more. Easy, tasty, and fast.

      very quick recipe! These were pretty good, though a little dry from the oven (I used extra lean hamburger) This would be rectified once they were served with a sauce, though. I also used triple the amount of worcestershire sauce though and next time would add a little horseradish, too. Will use again, thanks for posting.
