These are so great, and a lot cheaper than buying them in a store!



In a large bowl, combine beaten eggs and milk. Stir in soft bread crumbs (4 slices), and salt. Add ground beef and mix well. Chill.

With wet hands, shape into balls. Place into two 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inch baking pans. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25-30 minutes.

Put meatballs in another pan to cool. Place in freezer just until a little frozen, then put into zip lock freezer bags. You can then use a few at a time for your meals!

I have been baking meatballs similar to these for years. It is easy to do and they taste good. I often make them with half ground beef and half ground turkey. I like Montreal Steak seasoning or something similar to flavor the meatballs instead of just salt.

I love meatballs, but when a recipe calls for browning them on the stove, I have my own trick which is much less messy and I don't have to stand there turning the little buggers. I put all of the meatballs in a 13 X 9 pan for a large batch and bake them at 350 degrees F until brown. You can line the pan with foil for easy cleanup and no splatters on the stove!


You can also cook entire batches this way, by cooking meatballs all the way through for about 30 minutes, cool and freeze in ziploc bags for use in all kinds of recipes! Spaghetti and meatballs, meatball sandwiches, Swedish meatballs, crumbled in chili, etc.

To save even more time, you can pat out the mixture on a piece of wax paper on the counter into a rectangle and run thru w/ a pizza cutter. A quick roll into balls (or even leave them square, they'll kind of shrink into balls), and you've got equal sized pieces.
