Meatballs, my way.

You will need:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, turkey, pork, or chicken.
2-3 cloves garlic, diced.
2 slices of bread crumbs.
2 eggs.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix all ingredients including a generous sprinkle of the spices. I used my hands to mix everything. Then in a large 15x10 baking pan flatten out the meat into one large rectangle. Using a large knife divide the meat into 24 squares, then roll each square into a ball and place back in the pan. This should create uniform sized balls according to the Better Homes and Garden Cook Book. In my case it did not. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

The resulting meat balls are very garlicy and yummy. We had ours with spaghetti and a rather plain mushroom tomato sauce which complimented the meatballs quite well.

it seems like getting those two itty bitty slices of bread crumbs might be a bit of a pain the patookas, but then again, the activity of slicing bread crumbs may just be fun and whimsical. ;-)

I just ripped mine up. I guess you could use a food processor or something. I don't know the traditional way of collecting breadcrumbs.

I was teasing you about the way you phrased it...it's probably a result of living with a bunch of people on the autistic spectrum, but when you wrote "two slices of bread crumbs" I knew you meant to slices of bread, turned into crumbs, but the mental image I got was taking a bread crumb and cutting two slices off of it.

And it's late and I can't spell the difference between to and two. Lame.

Ha! That's pretty funny now that you explain it. It's pretty late here too, otherwise I might have been quicker on the uptake... Chintz.
