We use bread in a lot of recipes and really enjoyed it in the egg in a hole recipe we like for breakfast. This past weekend, my daughter and I made homemade meatballs. A lot of recipes call for dried bread crumbs, but I find a moist bread really helps make tender, delicious meatballs. Our recipe was fairly simple and you can adjust it with your favorite seasonings and spices.
2 pounds of ground beef
3 slices of wheat bread, torn
½ cup milk
1/2 cup finely diced mushrooms
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon oregano
1 tablespoon fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Red pepper flakes to taste – we have spicy tastes and used at least ¼ of a teaspoon.
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Tear the bread into small bits. Kids are great at helping with this step! In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and milk and pour over the bread mixture. Let the mixture sit about 5 minutes. Add the spices, cheese and ground beef and mix together well with your hands.
Roll the meatball mixture into meatballs. Kids are also great at helping here but need to be reminded to wash hands well when handling raw meat. Brown the meatballs a bit in a pan, and don’t worry if they brown a bit too much. They will soften up when you simmer them in your sauce. Add the meatballs to your favorite sauce. Simmer the meatballs on low heat in the sauce for at least an hour. Serve with your favorite pasta and enjoy!
Lily and I used 4 pounds of ground beef and counted out 89 meatballs. These keep well in the fridge and you can also freeze them.
