The Baked Meatball

Baked Meatballs
Not Glamorous but oh so tastie !!!

Inspiration Pulled from Alton Brown – but with out the pork or lamb. I got my little fellas a little crispy but they were still yummy. This recipe was easy and a win. I vote also for make ahead meals and freezer stashing.


1 pound ground round
5 ounces frozen spinach, thawed and drained thoroughly
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
1 whole egg
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup bread crumbs, divided

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground round, spinach, cheese, egg, basil, parsley, garlic powder, salt, red pepper flakes, and 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs. Using your hands, mix all ingredients until well incorporated.

Place the remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs into a small bowl. Using your hands, shape the meatballs into rounds, roll in the bread crumbs. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

I plopped mine in my sauce and simmered just a bit to get the sauce flavored and mya meatballsa savored.

Yes I have been speaking in an Italian accent during this whole writing process.
