Italian Meatballs


This is similar to the other meatball recipe I have, but without the sauce. They can be used in soup, over pasta or to make a meatball sandwich. We actually found this recipe years ago ... In fact we acquired it by copying it from a cookbook while standing in a grocery store. I seem to recall we were looking for a recipe to take to some get- together, and it's served that purpose many times over the years. The recipe has been modified to reduce the sodium, eliminating the salt and changing garlic salt to garlic powder, and using homemade bread. Baking the meatballs is much easier than frying them. And they don't fall apart from the handling.

1 1/2 lb Beef,Ground
1/2 c Egg Substitute
1/4 c Parmesan
1/2 t Garlic Powder
1 T Parsley
1/2 T Oregano
4 sl Bread,Crumbled
3 Onion,Chopped

Combine beef, egg, cheese, seasonings and bread. Form into 1 inch balls. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper towels.
