I Love love love this recipe… It freezes amazing… It’s SUPER easy to make, but it does require getting your hands a bit messy with raw meat, so it that’s not your thing maybe plan for gloves!
I love Meatballs with Sweet and Sour sauce (see our favorite recipe for this here! psst.. it’s also a GF and DF recipe!) Or with your Favorite Strogonoff recipe! (our favorite one will be on here soon)
2 Eggs Beaten
½ C milk* (see DF sub below)
½ C Parmasean Cheese* (see DF sub below)
1C Panko Bread crumbs * (see GF sub below)
1 Onion minced
2 Garlic cloves (or 2 tsp jarred minced garlic in oil)
½ t oregano
1 t salt
¼ t pepper
Put ALL ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix together with a wooden spoon or (my fav) your Hands! Mix until everything is well incorporated form meat into Pingpong sized meat balls
Bake on cookie sheet at 350 for 20-25min till internal temp is 165. No need to turn meatballs.
For easier clean up, place a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet before putting meatballs on it.
*For GF option use GF Bread crumbs, or in place of breadcrumbs you can crush up GF rice cripies!
*For Dariy Free ( DF ) Sub parm cheese for for extra breadcrumbs (use half the amount so 1/2c = 1/4c subbed in breadcrumbs) and use your fav UNFLAVORED dairy substitute for milk
For an extra level of flavor especially if you are using the meatballs with gravy or stroganoff, add 1 packet of Ranch Dressing powdered seasoning… you’ll never go back!
Once they are fully cooked, allow them to cool and place in ziplock bags to freeze.
I often portion them into full meals along with Rice or Noodles and either gravy or Sweet and Sour sauce too and freeze it altogether for a quick and easy dinner that just needs to be heated up!
