Mrs. Bear's Meataballs

I am glad you all enjoyed my song! As promised, here is my easiest meataball recipe (I have quite a few variations). If you make them - let me know how they turn out!

Mrs. Bear's Meataballs
1 lb ground chuck
1 lb ground pork
1 egg
1 green pepper, finely diced
1 small white onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon worchestershire
1 tablespoon tomato sauce
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (oregano, basil, parsley) OR 1/2 tablespoon each spice
1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix with your hands! If the mixture is too dry - add more tomato sauce. If the mixture is too wet - add more bread crumbs.
2. Roll the meatballs into whatever size you need for what you are making - teeny balls for pizza, small balls for sandwiches, large balls for pasta - and place them on a cookie sheet that has a high edge (the meatballs will produce some grease that you do not want dripping all over your oven).
3. Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on their size. After the first ten minutes, turn the meatballs around on the cookie sheet so they crisp on all sides. Enjoy!
