Mmm-mmm Meatballs

I usually make a double batch of these and freeze some to cook later.   If there are any leftover after broiling, I pop them into the kids’ lunches.  They are a great source of protein and delicious cold.   A single batch makes about 42 meatballs.

1 lb. ground beef (7-10% fat) or ground turkey (white or dark OK)
2 T. finely minced onion
1 large egg
1 tsp. finely ground sea salt
3/4 c. corn flake crumbs
½ c. finely grated parmesan or very sharp cheddar cheese
2-4 T. pesto (optional)
2 T. olive oil
Cooking spray

Spray a broiler pan with cooking spray and set aside. Preheat broiler.  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients just until mixed. Roll into 1 ¼ -inch balls.  (If you are going to freeze some, place those on a cookie sheet and freeze until solid.  Move to an airtight container.  Thaw before proceeding.)

Place meatballs on greased broiler pan. Broil 5-7 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Serve hot or cold.
