Meatballs - Version 1.0

We had company over the weekend and I was kind of feeling lazy and didn't want to make Korean food. I decided to keep dinner simple and made spaghetti and meatballs instead. Here's a quick meatball recipe~



Get 1 lb. of ground beef and set it aside in a large mixing bowl.



Grab some onions, parsley, garlic, and basil and chop it up.



Add this to the ground beef.



Get some cheese (in this case I used parmesan reggiano), chop it up and place it into a food processor too.



I added some leftover parsley also.



I added all that cheese plus a bunch of different seasonings. I added more a less 1 TB each of garlic salt, dried basil, dried parsley, oregano, lemon salt, herbs de provence, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, tarragon and a pinch of cayenne pepper.



Then I added about 1/2 cup of panko flakes, 2 TB flour, and 1 whole egg.



Mix everything around as thoroughly as possible.



And shape them into 2 inch round meatballs and pan fry it on medium heat.



I then transferred it to a baking sheet and put it into the oven about 15 minutes at 375 degrees.



Tada! Yummy meatballs all ready to serve! I just add them directly into the spaghetti sauce for more flavor.
