1 pound ground meat (turkey, chicken, hamburger or a mix)
1 egg (optional, but it makes it bind together more easily)
1/4 cup Parmesan (again, optional)
1/2 cup bread crumbs (white, whole wheat or panko)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Form them into meatballs. Heat oil in a cast iron or other large skillet over medium heat.
Place half the meatballs in the pan and brown them on all sides. Drain the meatballs on a plate lined with paper towels while you cook the other batch. Once the second batch is browned and drained, put them back in the pan with tomato sauce. Simmer them gently until cooked through and serve over pasta or on bread.
If you want to eat them later, after browning them, let them cool and freeze them. When you are ready to eat them, you can either bake them, directly from the freezer, at 350 for about 20 minutes. Or, you can put them, frozen in a pan with tomato sauce. Heat them on the stove until they are cooked through.
