The June Daring Cooks’ challenge sure kept us rolling – meatballs, that is! Shelley from C Mom Cook and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood challenged us to try meatballs from around the world and to create our own meatball meal celebrating a culture or cuisine of our own choice.
I have a confession to make – I’ve never made meatballs before! I’ve bought them, and I’ve eaten them, and I like them, but I’ve never actually made them! This made for a perfect June challenge.
Since I’m not a meatball pro, I went for a simple Italian meatball. I mixed 1 pound of ground beef, 1 chopped onion, 1 garlic clove, 1 egg, 1/2 c bread crumbs, and salt/pepper, formed balls, and baked everything for 35 minutes at 350 *F.
And paired with a tasty pasta, this made for a delicious meal!
