1 lb ground Italian Sausage & 1lb ground Chicken

(recipe called for pork & beef)

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

1 large slightly beaten egg

½ cup Italian breadcrumbs

2 1/2 tablespoons of minced garlic

2 teaspoons of salt (can use less)

1 teaspoon of black pepper

½ cup of milk

2 teaspoon dried oregano

2 1/2 teaspoons of dried parsley

Step 1: Mix all of the ingredients into a large bowl.

Step 2: Shape the mixture into small-medium sized meatballs. At this point if you don’t want to cook these right now you could put them in the freezer for later.

Step 3: Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees, and place the meatballs on a baking sheet. As you can see, I had to use pizza pans.

Step 4: Put your meatballs in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.Another cooking method is to simmer the meatballs in pasta sauce for about 40 minutes. This will give them great flavor and texture.

** I let them simmer in sauce for 3 hours. And they were amazing!!

Really, really good--and the fact that they're much healthier than standard meatballs makes them even more enjoyable.

('Course, if you eat 20 of them, the whole "less fat" thing goes flying out the window . . .)

It's also very convenient to freeze meatballs after baking them. You can double or triple the recipe and then freeze the extras for nights when you don't have time to prepare dinner. Just thaw a few meatballs and heat with some prepared sauce and cooked pasta or rice. Instant dinner.
