I love collecting recipes from family and friends and I try to cook a new one every week! I am slowly trying to replace all my unhealthy recipes with natural ingredients :) Here are some of my favorites:
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (a little more if you like things really cheesy)
Set the oven to 350F
Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl and beat well with a fork. Add the meat, breaking it apart as you add it to the bowl Add in the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the tomato sauce and the mozzarella cheese. Mix to combine everything well, using your fingertips. Don't compact the meat, and don't over mix it, you want these meatballs to be fluffy and light.
Scoop out the meat into approximately 22 balls and roll the balls round with your hands. I used my 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop.
Set the meatballs on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes.
After you put the meatballs in the oven, pour the sauce into a 10 inch cast iron skillet and place in the oven along with the meatballs for the last 10 minutes of cooking, to heat up the sauce.
Remove both pans from the oven and transfer the meatballs to the skillet, nestling them into the sauce. Return the skillet to the oven and cook for another 10 minutes, If you made your meatballs smaller or larger, the cooking time may vary.
Remove the skillet again and top with the cheese. Return to the oven to melt the cheese. Set under the broiler if you want it to brown, but watch carefully.
Serve immediately with garlic toasts.
To make the toasts, thinly slice a baguette and brush one side with olive oil. Set the toasts oil side down on a very hot grill pan for a few minutes until toasted. Rub the cut side of garlic along the toasted surface of the hot bread.
A wife and Mommy who loves the Lord and my family. I am not blogging to make money or gain followers... I am just trying to keep track of our memories, favorite recipes, and lessons learned as we enjoy life together serving our Lord. I hope to encourage other Mamas while making keepsake scrapbooks and cookbooks for my girls.
Just wanted to let you know that these recipes are not all necessarily healthy :) I do try to cook the majority of meals for my family using more whole foods and natural ingredients. However, some of these are favorites that have been passed down and are too good to forget!
Also, I am not a doctor and any nutritional advice is simply the product of my own research and should not be taken as anything more than that :)
