It was meat shopping time last month. Of course I picked up about 5 pounds of ground beef to make tasty meatballs with. Once cooked, I freeze them in batches. To reheat, I just set the oven to whatever temperature the garlic bread I’m making with the meatballs should be. Throw the meatballs in while the oven is preheating. Once it’s time to put the bread in the meatballs will be ready. This recipe is very easy to adapt to how many pounds of meat you have. Just add more eggs and breadcrumbs.
2 cups dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
4 pounds lean ground beef
1. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add the next five ingredients. Add beef; mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls, about 12 dozen. Place in single layers in ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pans.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes or until no longer pink, turning often; drain. Cool.
Place about 30 meatballs each into freezer containers. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
Yield: 5 batches (about 30 meatballs per batch)
