Beef Meatballs

Because these meatballs are baked all at once in the oven, they are a snap to put together. Whip up a double batch and save some in the freezer for a really quick and easy meal.

    Meatballs that are baked -- got to love that. I don't have a broiler pan -- time to pull out the sheet pan (I'm thinking that would work ok?).

  2. I've not tried a baking sheet, but it's worth a shot. :)
