Description

Umami-rich mushrooms are blended with ground beef and seasoned to create the perfect Italian-style meatball. Serve with marinara and spaghetti or toss with a Teriyaki sauce and serve as an appetizer.


Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking tray with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Place the mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat cook chopped mushrooms until brown and most moisture has been released, about 3-5 minutes. Set aside to let cool.
  4. In a large bowl combine cooled mushrooms, beef, seasoning, onion, garlic breadcrumbs and egg; mix all ingredients until incorporated. Shape mixture into 1½ inch meatballs. Place 1 inch apart on pan.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until meatballs reach 160°F, are cooked through and center is no longer pink.
