Catwoman's Homemade Italian Meatballs

When I find ground beef in bulk for a deal, I make these and freeze them in big ziploc-type freezer bags. Experiment with the seasonings to your taste.

2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
2 eggs, scrambled
saltine crackers, crushed small, half tube +
1/2 onion, minced
3 Tbsp. parmesan cheese, grated finely
garlic cloves, minced
dried parsley to taste
dried sage (my secret ingredient!)
salt to taste
black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray onto a cookie sheet.

Mix all ingredients together well. Use as many cracker bits as needed- meatballs should be moist but not slimy. Form into half-dollar sized balls and place on cookie sheet so sides are not touching. Cook in oven for 15-18 minutes, watching so they don't burn, until brown. If desired, roll meatballs on paper towels to get rid of extra grease.

Serve meatballs with pasta, in sandwiches, in soups, or however you like.
