Basic Meatball Recipe

  • 500 grams ground beef

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs or rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper, optional (the meatballs will pick up seasonings from whatever you put them in)

Combine all the ingredients, and shape them into 1 inch balls. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a skillet, and brown the meatballs on all sides. Remove to a dish to drain. Cool, then pack in freezer containers, or in foil, then freezer bags. Store in freezer for up to 3 months.

simmer down notes:

  • I made these before hearing a recipe from my husband’s aunt for chicken meatballs that are boiled, not fried, and the water can be filled with vegetables and then used for soup. When and if I make those I’ll post that recipe.
  • This was my first time making meatballs and they were very easy and satisfying, although they did completely lose their lovely round shape the moment I started frying them.
  • I used a combination of breadcrumbs and quick oats in this recipe.
