Meatball Sandwiches

Sending food along to hunting camp is something I try to do so they have decent home cooked meals when they come in from the woods and are cold, hungry and just ready to kick back. This year the boys are on a meatball sandwich craze so I sent these along for one meal last weekend.
The meatballs are moist and tender and full of flavor.  
3 lbs. 85% ground beef
3 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese
1½ cups Italian Panko Crumbs
1½ Tablespoons dry onion flakes
1½ Tablespoons Garlic and Herb Seasoning
4 garlic cloves, fresh pressed
Salt and Pepper
In a large bowl combine the eggs and milk with a wire whisk. Add the garlic, onions, Parmesan cheese, and seasonings; stir. Then add the Panko Crumbs and stir again. Let set till the crumbs are soggy then add the ground beef and mix with your hands. (with gloves)
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. With a size 50 cookie scoop form balls and drop onto baking sheet. I like to make them perfectly round so I roll them between my hands a little bit too. Bake @400° for 15 minutes. Allow to cool or place in a crock pot with Pizza Sauce. Or heat them in a large pan. ☺ I like having options. ☺
When I make them there are usually too many for what I need right away. They freeze quite well in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Then place them in a Ziploc bag and store in the freezer. 
Makes approximately 70 meatballs.
The guys are on there way to the mountains again, but with plans to come home tomorrow night. ☺
 I think Serena and I will have a laid back reading and movie kind of night.
 Hope you have a wonderful evening!

  1. Those look really yummy! I would eat a couple of those after being out hunting all day! :)

    I haven't made meatballs in a very long time! Once in a while I made them for spaghetti, when a meat sauce seems a little boring.

    Enjoy your quiet girl night! :)

  2. Oh Martha! You would be one VERY popular lady with my children with this recipe!! Love it :)

  3. What a great sandwich - I never would have thought of putting meatballs in a sandwich, but I'm totally loving the idea, and I wouldn't need to spend a few cold hours in the woods to devour one of these.

  4. That is one tasty sandwich! Thanks for linking up!
