These got 7 double thumbs up, which means I'll definitely be making them again. I give them "the golden spoon award" because they are delicious, the recipe makes a lot (hello, freezer) and it was really easy to make.
The recipe comes from a meatloaf recipe in Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book . Instead of dumping the meat mixture into a loaf pan, I rolled them into little bite size mini-meatballs so my toddlers could pop them into their little mouths.
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs or gluten free bread crumbs****
1/4 cup milk or your choice of non-dairy milk
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup carrot, shredded
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1 lb ground beef
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Roll out your meatballs, place them on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-20 minutes depending on how well done you want them.
For an appetizer, throw the meatballs in a crockpot and cover with bbq sauce. Set it on low just to keep everything warm and your ready to go. Don't forget the toothpicks!
