Meatballs!





Hamburger (1/2 pound of 93% ground beef is what I used)
15 Ritz crackers, finely crushed
1 egg
2 pieces of bread, that have been soaked in either half-and-half or milk, so they're saturated
a teaspoon of salt (I use Lawry's Garlic Salt)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder OR freshly minced garlic (eliminate this if you use Garlic Salt)
about 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon parsley
1 teaspoon onion powder
not quite a tablespoon of Italian seasoning (you can use a whole tablespoon if you prefer, I just don't)
a tablespoon or so of olive oil
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Combine all ingredients, using a fork or pastry blender to mix (or your hands, for best results)
Using a tablespoon or mini-ice cream scoop for measuring, roll into balls and set aside while a drizzle of olive oil is heating in a non-stick skillet. Cook on medium-high for 4 - 7 minutes, until brown. Bake in 375 oven for 10 - 12 minutes.
