When I was much younger, I got a cookbook as a birthday or Christmas present from my Grandma called Clueless in the kitchen.  It was my very first cookbook and probably what got me started in cooking.  I can't seem to find the book at this moment.  I'm sure it's packed away in the garage somewhere because we have no room for all my cookbooks anywhere else in the house.  One of my favorite things to make out of there was the meatballs.  I love spaghetti and meatballs, meatball sandwiches, and Hawaiian meatballs.  This is not the exact recipe from the book but this is very close.



1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
garlic powder
Italian seasoning


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, egg and bread crumbs.  Season with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning to your liking.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
When I remove them from the cookie sheet, I like to place them on a paper towel to catch any left behind grease before serving.
