1pound ground beef

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Shape the ground beef into about 2 dozen 1-inch meatballs.
  3. Place meatballs on an ungreased baking sheet or dish and bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 375 F.

Servemeatballs over noodles or rice with sauce on top.  Spaghetti Sauce or Sweet & Sour Sauce goes nicely over meatballs.  2 cups Beef Gravy mixed with 1/2 cup Tofutti Better than Sour Cream makes a great Swedish meatball or Stroganoff sauce.

These meatballs are just plain ground beef.  Our family likes them that way.  You may of course use the meatloaf recipe and make meatballs out of that if you prefer.  The larger the meatballs are the longer they have to cook.  One-inch balls cook in under 30 minutes.
