"Split Decision" Meal: Meatball Sandwiches / Spaghetti


2 eggs
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion or dry minced onion
1/8 cup finely chopped parsley
3/4 teaspoons dry mustard
1 lb ground beef or turkey
1 lb pork or turkey sausage

In large bowl, beat eggs and stir in bread crumbs until well
combined. Stir in milk, onion, parsley, salt and mustard. Add meat
and knead with wet hands until well blended. Pat meat into rectangle
about 1-inch thick. Cut into 1-inch squares and form each square
into ball Place meat balls in large shallow baking pan and bake in
400: F oven for about 25 minutes or until browned. (Can be frozen;
transfer to cookie sheet and freeze individually before putting in
a tightly sealed container or Ziploc bag.)

Can also prepare 2 lb. Italian sausage (boil 10 min. then brown in
a skillet), then slice into 1" thick pieces-- Or buy 2 lb. frozen
prepared meatballs.

Spaghetti Sauce:

2- 29 oz can tomato sauce, or similar size can crushed tomatoes or puree
1- 16 oz can tomato paste
2 tsp oregano
1/4 cup minced dry onion (or 1/2 onion, chopped finely)
1 Tbsp garlic powder, or 2-3 cloves fresh, crushed
1/2 tsp black pepper (optional)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Mix all in saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook 1/2 hour. Add
meatballs or sausage. (Can be done in a crock pot with frozen
meatballs on high for 4-6 hours).

Pluck some meatballs out with tongs and place into large hoagie or
poorboy rolls. Add additional sauce if desired; top with mozzarella
or jack cheese, arrange in baking dish and bake for 10 minutes at
450, if desired, to warm bread and melt cheese. Great with pepper
flakes (pizza pepper) on top.

Ladle sauce over spaghetti (with meatballs if desired), or pasta
of your choice. Top with Parmesan if desired. This recipe makes a
HUGE amount of food if you do all of it; it would be good to cook
for the freezer or for casual company, or as potluck. I did it
because my husband and I like meatball sandwiches but our children
will not touch them; they love spaghetti though.
