    Default This is a two part question

    I am needing a recipe of meatballs in sauce to serve over rice for tonight. It can be any sauce as long as there isnt any fancy ingredients,frugl and basic as I have no bread crumbs! I am also wanting to sore some inthe frezzer for another time as I want to prepare them in bulk.Can meatballs be prepared without breadcrumbs?? Can they be cooked inthe oven instead of frying them??I have never made them before,I have Hamburger meat inthe fridge that I dont want to throw out,but has to be used today.

    slices of bread cut into small cubes (including crusts)
    1 egg
    1/4 c. milk
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1/4 c. dried parsley
    1/2 T. dried basil
    1/3 c. grated parmesan cheese
    1lb ground beef, or beef with pork mixture


    In a large mixing bowl stir the bread, egg and milk to completely combine and let it sit for 15 minutes. Mash up the mixture with a fork to make a smooth paste. Add all of the seasonings and cheese and mix well. Add the beef (or beef and pork mixture) and stir together until completely combined. Form the mixture into balls (about the size of a golf ball) and place on a GREASED baking sheet (for easier handling when forming meatballs, lightly wet hands with water and the mixture won't stick to your hands).

    Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20 minutes, turning over after 10 minutes. Drain the meatballs on a paper towel and place in a large glass bowl. Add 2 cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce and stir just enough to cover meatballs. Cover bowl with paper towel and microwave on medium for five minutes, stir, recover and microwave on low for an additional 20 minutes.
