    Seedbeads's Note:

    I don't remember where I found this recipe - I've made it so often, I've memorized it. The trick to these meatballs is to only plan to use half of them - that's all I ever have left by the time I'm ready to put them in something else. It's the only time I've ever had ground beef melt in my mouth.

    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix really well.
    2. 2
      Roll meat into 1" balls- at this point, you can either continue or freeze them for later use, providing your beef wasn't pre-frozen.
    3. 3
      Arrange the meatballs on a rack over a foil-lined pan (for easy clean-up).
    4. 4
      Bake in a 400ºF oven for about 10 minutes, or until meatballs are browned- you can also freeze them at this point, or use them in other dishes (or just eat them plain).

      I thought they were good and the toddlers ate them. Substituted dried italian herbs at a lower quantity and added onion/garlic powders too. My hubby wanted them a little more brown or crispy but I used turkey so that could be it. Would use less than a tblsp of italian herbs next time and maybe try with beef. Hubby thought they were "sweet" but he always suspects that of my food...there's NO sugar in this and I don't taste sweetness at all.

      Excellent. They work well for my daughter who is allergic to eggs and dairy. Very quick and easy to make.

      Great, little meatballs. I subbed an egg for the water and added a little garlic powder and chili powder as I did not have any fresh chives. I served with some brown gravy and mashed potatoes, thank you for the great little recipe!!!
