Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Categories    : Freezer Cooking, Meat         


   1      lb            lean ground beef
   1/2   cup          Italian-style bread crumbs
   1/4   cup          milk
   1/2   tsp           salt
   1/2   tsp           Worcestershire sauce
   1/4   tsp           pepper
   1      small       onion, finely chopped (optional)
   1                      egg

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. In large bowl, mix all ingredients.  Shape mixture into 20-24 (1 1/2 in.) meatballs.  Place 1 inch apart in pan.

3. Bake uncovered 18-22 minutes or until no longer pink in center.

4. If baking for the freezer, line a clean cookie sheet with wax paper and place baked meatballs on it.  Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator.  When cool, transfer the cookie sheet of meatballs into the  freezer to "flash freeze."  When outside is completely frozen, place them in a 1 - gallon freezer bag.

Cooking Tips:
1.  Use melon-baller to make uniform meat balls.
2.  When baking, a 1 - inch space is not required between the meatballs.

Great versatile recipe... use in spaghetti sauce, meatball hoagies or calzones, or with brown gravy and noodles, etc!
