Sunday in the Kitchen - Basic Homemade Meatballs

This is a recipe for basic homemade meatballs. I don't remember where it came from and now that I'm doing low carb I would probably change the oats in the meat mixture to something else but this is the original recipe :)

1 Large Egg
1/4 Cup Milk
2 tbsp Ketchup
3/4 Cup Quick-Cooking Oats
1 tbsp Onion Powder
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Salt
1 Pound 85/15 Ground Beef
2 tbsp Flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease shallow baking pan.

In a large bowl combine egg, milk, ketchup, oats, onion, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt. Crumble beef into the mixture and mix well. Shape the mixture into meatballs (this recipe should make about 22). Roll each meatball in the flour, shake off excess flour and place in baking pan.

Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes, turning once if desired, until the mixture is no longer pink inside (baking times may vary due to different ovens). Drain meatballs on paper towels and enjoy!
