Homemade Meatballs

This is one of those things that is nice to keep in the freezer . . . grab them quickly and dinner can be started in a big hurry!  And the recipe makes about 100 meatballs, so it will make plenty . . .

Homemade Meatballs
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground turkey
1 lb. ground pork
1 - 10 oz pkg. chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed of excess moisture
1/2 c grated parmesan
3 large eggs
2 TBL Italian seasoning
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 c bread crumbs (panko bread crumbs work well)

Preheat oven to 400* and spray 2 rimmed cookie sheets with pan spray.

Mix together all ingredients until well incorporated, but do not over mix.
Pinch off large teaspoons of meat mixture and roll into balls.  Place on prepared
cookie sheets.  Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes.  Use immediately with your favorite sauce, either BBQ or marinara.

To freeze, cool completely, place on clean cookie sheets, and freeze for 1-2 hours.
When frozen completely, transfer to ziploc bags and place back in freezer.
