IMG_3102

I was so happy with these meatballs. I am happy to share them with you. They are melt in your mouth, with a delicious flavor, and made with whole wheat bread crumbs. You can make them ahead of time, and even freeze until you are ready to bake. A great meal for the weeknight.

Monster Meatballs

1 1/2 lbs. 80/20 ground beef

2 slices whole wheat bread, cut into tiny cubes

1 egg

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

1 tbsp. basil

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. parsley

Put all ingredients together into a large mixing bowl- and mix by hand until all ingredients are incorporated. Separate out into 8 equal portions, then shape into a large ball and place in a 9×13 baking dish. Then pour over 2 cups crushed tomatoes mixed with 1 tsp. Italian season, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve over cooked pasta. Top with grated Parmesan cheese.

Happy Dinnertime!
