By PutoPinoy on Saturday, July 14, 2007 At Saturday, July 14, 2007


  • 1 egg
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 c. bread crumbs or 2 slices bread, torn into tiny pieces
  • 1 lg. jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. onion flakes
  • Spaghetti
  • Grated cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Break the egg into a large mixing bowl and beat it lightly with a fork. Add the ground beef, bread crumbs, 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce, onion flakes and salt. Mix everything together. Shape the mixture into 1" meatballs. Arrange them next to one another (but not touching) in a baking pan, 13"x9"x2". Bake for 20 minutes, you don't have to turn them, they brown evenly.

As soon as you put the meatballs in the oven, start cooking the spaghetti. When you add the spaghetti to the boiling water start heating the spaghetti sauce. Put the drained hot spaghetti on a serving platter with a slotted spoon, remove the meatballs from the baking pan and arrange them on top of the spaghetti. Pour the hot spaghetti sauce over everything. Serve with the grated cheese.
