My mom is the one who made the meatballs today. Like Mercedes, she finds recipes online and then adds her own twist to them. And yes, technically I'm supposed to make the food, but I was busy making the spaghetti. haha Also, our oven and stove are gas powered and since that costs a shitton of money, we use things like an electric skillet instead so these won't be made in the oven.
Ingredients:-2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Oil
-1 Pound Lean Ground Beef
-1 Large Egg
-1/2 Cup Finely Chopped White Onion
-1/2 Cup Italian Bread Crumbs (We used the Great Value brand from WalMart.)
-1/2 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
-1/4 Cup Milk
-2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
-1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
-2 Teaspoons Tabasco Sauce
-Salt And Pepper To Taste (We judge by the smell at first, since you know, you can't eat raw meat.)
-1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
Take all of the dry seasonings (onion, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic salt) and mix them in a big bowl.
Get a large bowl and put all of the wet seasonings (oil, egg, milk, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce) in it with the hamburger meat. Then mix it together.
Mix the dry seasonings into the wet seasonings, into one big bowl. So, you're basically combining steps one and two.
Make a small patty in your hand, place as much mozzarella as you want in the center, then roll it into a ball.
Put them in the skillet and dash each meatball with Worcestershire sauce. Put the skillet on 200. (Keep in mind, we have an electric skillet, so it might cook different than a regular skillet.)
Leave the lid on, checking occasionally, until they are totally brown. The cheese will probably be melting by that point too.
That's it! Pretty simple, eh? You can top it with your favorite marinara, of course, but Wednesday's post will show you how to make spaghetti the way I like it, so you might want to add it all together.
