Meatless Meatballs – A small batch

January 19, 2014 at 1:45 pm Leave a comment


I consider this dish vegetarian, only because it’s meatless. Dairy and eggs are used, but can easily be substituted.

2 cups tomato sauce (approx.)
1 1/2 cups ground nuts (I used pecan, but walnuts will work as well)
1/2 cup shredded cheese, plus more for sprinkling on the top
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 onion, grated
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried
1/2 teaspoon basil, dried
1 tablespoon parsley
salt, pepper, & chili

Mix everything together, season to taste, and let rest in the fridge for about an hour

Preheat oven to 375°F

Form mixture into balls
place in a baking dish
cover with sauce
sprinkle with extra cheese
bake for 30-40 minutes

Makes approximately 14 meatballs

Serve hot

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
