Rolled and ready for the oven!
Rolled and ready for the oven!

Bake for 7 minutes, then flip them over, place back in the oven for 10 minutes until browned and cooked through.

Done!
Done! They come out tasting amazing, and they’re the perfect consistency!  Add them in to your favorite sauce and serve over pasta or in a sandwich!

This recipe yielded about 47 meatballs for me today.  (Yes, that’s a lot of meatballs!) But what I do is separate portions of ten meatballs, then once they are cooled, place them in freezer zip-loc bags and put them in the freezer.  This way I have a homemade meal at my fingertips anytime. I love to make my simple tomato sauce, which I was simmering before I started on these, then add that portion of meatballs in and let simmer for 30 minutes. So good! Especially if you make a sandwich out of them, which is what we are doing tonight.  YUM!

Also, here is a recipe for my regular meatballs. Click here!
