Oven Meatballs

Looking for a great oven baked meatball recipe? Here is a great tasting meatball that you and your crew are going to love.  It is very easy to make and it requires only a few ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard. These meatballs are great in pasta sauce, and they are amazing when dipped or when coated in barbecue sauce.  My husband absolutely loves them in barbecue sauce!  Whether it’s for a pasta meal for the family at home or it’s for an appetizer at a friend’s party these meatballs are going to get a lot of attention while they last. 

First combine all ingredients and mix together.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until the meatballs reach 160 degrees on a meat thermometer.  Now you can remove them from the pan and serve them with your favorite sauce. This meatball freezes very well so if you have too many just freeze them for later.

Easy Cheesy Potatoes

cheeesy potatoes

 

This is a recipe that I make quite often for birthday parties and for pot lucks. It’s easy to make and it’s convenient since you mix it up the night before your event.  On the day of your party all you have to do is place the potato chips on top and bake it in the oven.

First you combine the potatoes and all of the ingredients (except the potato chips) in a bowl.mixed-ingredients

Now mix all of your ingredients (except the potato chips) and then put them in a greased 9×13 inch pan or a 3 quart casserole dish. Refrigerate overnight. Then top with your crushed plain potato chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Beef and Onion Sliders

Beef Sliders

 

Here’s an easy main dish or appetizer for a party. A couple of years ago I served these sliders at a garden party. Everyone loved them!  The onions in the sliders deliver a ton of flavor!  A few of the guys at the party couldn’t stop eating them.  One of the guys even left with one or two sliders in their hands.  This is a great dish for a large group; all you have to do is bake them in the oven. The beef and onion sliders are a definite crowd pleaser.  

You start by covering the bottom of a 8×8 baking dish with 1/4 cup dry minced onions.onions-web

Then put 1 pound of ground beef on top of the onions. Pat it down so it is an even layer. Next, season with salt and pepper or with your favorite seasoning.

Bake the pan in a preheated 400 degree oven for 35 min. After the 35 min, make sure the meat temps at 160 degrees. Next, cut up the meat into 12 equal pieces and put them on the buns. I used King’s Hawaiian Rolls, but you can use any cocktail roll that you have.  Now you can add cheese or your favorite toppings and serve.
