Hip To Be Square Meatballs

Meatballs with less effort. In today's newspaper (April 25, 2007), the Dallas Morning News ran a column titled "Double Duty Dinners", by Susan Nicholson, about making a meatloaf and, after baking, cutting it into small squares. Be sure an instant read thermometer reads 160 degrees F. This appeals to me, because I find making individual meatballs to be tedious and messy. It's called Hip-to-be-square meatballs.

WOW--I've been doing this for years. I hate making round meatballs and cleaning up the frying splatters from them. It makes the job so much easier.

Often I'll put the meat in a small square, cake pan so the meat-squares are 1-layer deep (they bake quicker). I either bake them in my toaster oven (less energy usage) or in my big oven if I have several other things to bake with them.
