These are very good. You don't miss the meat at all. They are time consuming. I am going to play with trying to back them next time...I got the recipe from an online friend Liz.
Very tasty and when served w/ spaghetti & sauce there are 19g of protein per serving. this recipe is for 6 servings. Even good plain as shown above.
2 C cooked rice (white or brown)
1/2 C uncooked quick oats
1/4 C plain breadcrumbs (seasoned would be fine too)
1/4 C milk
1 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning
1 med. onion chopped (approx. 1/2 C)
1 tsp. garlic salt (could use fresh garlic if you have it handy)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 C. bread crumbs or wheat germ for dredging
oil for cooking.
whisk together egg and milk in a bowl. add other ingredients (thru cayenne pepper) and mix well with hands. gently shape into balls and dredge in bread crumbs or wheat germ. cook in a lightly oiled pan 4-5 minutes, shaking or turning frequently so they brown evenly.
this recipe makes approx. 12 large meatballs (2 in. diameter) or 16-20 smaller ones (1 1/2 in. or so in diameter).
