meatballs on monday

homemade meatballs are one of my favorite go to 'i don't really have anything to make for dinner' things to make. they are quick and simple and oh so yummy!!

here is what I do ..

combine one whole egg .. one fourth of a cup each of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese .. and a big pinch each of salt pepper and italian seasoning in a bowl {i also add a little pinch of crushed red pepper flakes sometimes if i am feeling spicy}

add one cup each of diced onion and bell pepper

then add one pound of whatever ground meat suits your fancy
i used ground bison this time but i often use turkey or beef too

mix it all up and roll them up into whatever sized ball you want and place them either in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray or your crook pot sprayed with cooking spray
then cover them with whatever pasta sauce you like {i thin mine out a little with vegetable stock but you don't have to do that}
if you are cooking them in the oven .. cover the dish with foil and bake at 200° for six to eight hours
if you are cooking in the crock pot turn it on low and cook for six to eight hours

then you can do whatever you want with them
serve them over pasta
put them on a hoagie roll with some fresh mozzarella and or provolone for a meatball sub
eat them on their own

it doesn't really matter .. they are great no matter how you eat them :)

happy monday!!
