DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, combine seasonings, oat bran, oats, and egg replacement powder.
  • Add pasta sauce and mix thoroughly.
  • Add ground beef and mix thoroughly (I knead it with my hands like a bread dough, folding over a side and pressing in). The oats will absorb liquid as you mix, creating a firmer texture. You can let this sit for a few minutes to thicken as well.
  • Put 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Form the mixture into small meatballs, about an inch in diameter.
  • Cook the meatballs about 5 minutes, until crispy and browned on one side, then turn. Turn again to brown as much surface as possible.
  • If you opened up a fresh jar of pasta sauce, pour the rest over the cooked meatballs and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve on fresh rolls (I use http://www.food.com/recipe/potato-buns-bread-machine-412701) or over pasta.
