Making Homemade Meatballs at Your Apartment Near The Villages, FL

Spaghetti and meatballs is a much-loved meal for people of all generations and ages. Spaghetti is a comforting, classic dish and the addition of meatballs turns the flavor up a notch. If you’d like to add meatballs to your next spaghetti night, we’ve compiled an easy recipe to help you do so.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make homemade meatballs at your apartment near The Villages, Florida:

• Lean ground beef, 1 lb

• Egg, 1 large

• Water, 2 tablespoons

• Bread crumbs, 1/2 cup

• Minced onion, 1/4 cup

• Salt, 1/2 teaspoon

• Pepper, 1/8 teaspoon

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the egg, water, bread crumbs, onion, salt, and pepper. Once those ingredients are well-mixed, break the ground beef into chunks and then add to the mixture, mashing it together with your hands. Next, line a baking pan with parchment paper, form the meatballs (you can make them as small or as large as you’d like), and place onto the pan, spacing them evenly apart. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the meatballs are no longer pink in the middle. Let cool for five minutes, and then they are ready to eat. These meatballs also freeze well, so you can choose to set some aside in the freezer to use at a later date.
