Great Italian Meatballs, from baked meatballs


Baked meatballs

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 6 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup finely chopped spelt bread (about 2 thin slices)[or other BTD compliant bread, such as Ezekiel or Kamut]
  • 1 Tablespoon dried leaf basil
  • 1/4 cup soy milk [or other BTD compliant milk]
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino romano cheese (sheep's milk)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black peppercorns
How to make it:
  1. In large bowl, mix all ingredients throughly by hand.
  2. I check for salt by taking a small quarter sized amount and cooking in microwave for about 50 seconds.
  3. When mixed, roll into meatballs (mine are about 2-1/2' diameter) and I get about 10 meatballs. You can certainly make meatballs any size you want.
  4. Place meatballs on a flat pan and bake until browned, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. At this point you can continue cooking meatballs in oven and until completely cooked or you can take browned meatballs and continue cooking them in your favorite tomato sauce.
  6. Optionally: after cooled, place in a plastic bag and freeze.
