BAKED MEATBALLS
1 pound ground beef
1 pound bulk Italian sausage
2 teaspoons dry minced onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 2 ounces (I used the kind in a can)
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl using your fingers. Mix until the meat no long feels slimy from the eggs. Shape in golf ball size meatballs and place on a large baking sheet with sides. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until the meatballs are done all the way through. Rinse in a colander to remove any egg and cheese that has leaked out.

Makes about 20-30 meatballs

These are a slight variation of the recipe from the Atkins website. They came out very tender and good. Add your favorite sauce, but count the additional carbs. My son said these were better than my regular meatball recipe.

An email friend named Nancy sent me this photo of her "spaghetti" and meatball dinner so I thought I'd share it. She made the Baked Meatballs, Zucchini "Noodles" and Artisan Flat Bread.
