Italian Meatballs / Hamburgers
1.5 Lbs Ground Beef
1 cup of bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesean
3 Tablespoons Parsley
3 Tablespoons Oregano
2 Tablespoons Minced Onion
1 Tablespoon Crushed Red Pepper
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper
In a Large bowl, combine the ingredients. Mix with a large spatula until the ingredients are blended well.
Now, for Meatballs, remove about a quarter of a hand-full for each meatball and roll into a ball. Lay out the balls on a cookie sheet with parchment paper laid across it. Cook at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Let the balls cool for about ten minutes and they are ready to serve. You may also freeze them. To de-frost let sit out for about an hour.
For Hamburgers form into about 3/4 of a handful, roll and press the meat into a patty shape. For best results, grill them on a propane grill.
This is a simple, flexible recipe that makes great burgers and the meatballs are great for pasta dishes, for meatball subs, sandwiches, and sliders.
