The weather is getting colder which means its time for lots of soups, pastas, and casseroles. One of my favorite things to eat is spaghetti and meatballs, and while I love a good frozen meatball, I love homemade ones even more. Here’s a recipe I like to make! It makes 32 meatballs, perfect for a dinner party or for yourself to eat throughout the week.
- 2lbs ground beef
- 1 eggs
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- Salt and pepper
First Step: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Second Step: Chop up your veggies. I like adding hidden veggies into my meatballs, and you will want to dice them up nice and small. They don’t add much flavor to the meatball hence why I call it hidden. I used my Ninja chopper to dice my veggies.
Third Step: Add all your ingredients into the bowl. Put in as much salt and pepper as you desire. No really as much as desire.
Fourth Step: Mash it all together. Yes with your hands… get dirty! It’s so much fun and if you have kids, get them to help too!
Fifth Step: Spray a pan down with your fav cooking spray. I prefer to use a mini cupcake pan for my meatballs, but a regular cookie sheet with foil on it works too!
Sixth Step: Roll the meat mixture into little balls. However big or small. The smaller they are the more you get, the larger… you get it. I prefer mine to be about an inch in diameter. But you do you boo.
Seventh Step: Place in oven for 7 minutes.
Eighth Step: Take out and flip the meatballs over. Put back in oven for another 5 minutes.
Last Step: Add to sauce or eat alone. Whatever you do…Enjoy!
