I hate spending the time making those little round balls, so I came up with this method.

What a great idea! These little squares will work in all sorts of things with a little seasoning change - Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together well.
  2. Pat into a 1" high rectangle, about 7" by 11" in the centre of a sheet of foil.
  3. Transfer foil into a 9" by 13" pan.
  4. Cut through into 1" squares.
  5. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from oven and separate squares a little bit, using a spatula or long knife.
  7. Return to oven and bake another 10-15 minutes until cooked through.
  8. Drain and cool meatballs (or squares) and freeze on a cookie sheet. Package up when frozen and use in any recipe calling for meatballs. (I substitute them for the meat cubes in Oven Mushroom Stew, which I will also be posting today).
