These are delicious. They are larger then your normal meatball. I served mine with a fresh salad.
I've been trying to come up with a blurb for the post all day.
I got nothin'.
Here's looking at you, kid.
You will need:
Oven temp 350 degrees F (176 degrees C)
1 pound (450 g) ground beef
1/4 cup (40 g) bread crumbs
1 tbs (30 ml) olive oil
1/4 cup (113 g) shredded cheese
I used fresh spinach and saute it. Just follow the direction on the back of the bag or buy canned or frozen.
I added the egg, breadcrumbs, cheese, salt and pepper.
I also added onion powder, garlic powder, basil and cumin about 1/8 teaspoon each.
Flatten the ground meat, add a little ricotta cheese and spinach.
You want some of the cheese and spinach to show out the top.
If you pinch it closed the sides will pop open.
Put a few tablespoons of olive oil in the baking dish and spread around so the meatballs don't stick.
Place in preheated oven at 350 degrees F (176 degrees C) for 30 minutes.
If you do have a few split open, push them closed with the bottom of a spoon. Be careful, they will be hot!
