4 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup dry bread crumbs or organic oats
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 Tablespoon sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 375F.
Combine all ingredients. Blend well.
Use a cookie scoop to shape.
Place on an ungreased baking pan (we line ours with aluminum foil for easy cleanup).
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until browned. Cool.
Place about 20 -25, depending on your family size in a freezer container. Use within 3 months.
Our two favorite recipes for meatballs are Swedish Meatballs and Crock pot Mock Lasagna.
For a quick lunch or snack, put a few meatballs on a cookie sheet and bake at 375* until warmed through. Pour barbecue sauce over meatballs to coat thoroughly!
Just a note - this is 6.15 pounds of ground beef, so don't expect this much if you follow the above recipe exactly, we had to modify it slightly for the package we got. With this large package I was able to get 125 meatballs. 25 meatballs in each bag (5).
The finished meatballs ready for the freezer.
