Baked meatballs is a very versatile recipe.

I think everyone likes meatballs!  These baked meatballs can be frozen or used for spaghetti or appetizers. Super easy to make and your family will love them and ask for them often.

Baked meatballs are delicious and recipe could be doubled or cut in half.

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 egg
1 cup quick cooking oats, uncooked
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 onion, grated
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or one clove of garlic, chopped

In  a large bowl combine all ingredients.  I mix it with my hands and roll into meatballs the size you like.  Spray a cookie sheet or flat pan with cooking spray.  Place meatballs about one inch apart and cook in preheated 400 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes.  Makes about 25 regular sized meatballs or 35 small ones. Once cooked add a jar or can of your favorite spaghetti sauce or make your own sauce.  Serve over spaghetti.

You can also make these smaller and once cooked put in crock pot with 1 cup grape jelly and 1 1/2 cups chili sauce.  Cook on low for about 5 hours and makes a great appetizer to serve at parties.

These freeze well, too. Just be sure they are completely cooled before freezing and place in airtight container.   Enjoy!
