Healthy Eating: Roy Mazzola’s Meatballs


2 1/2 pounds ground beef (can use half pork if desired)

4 eggs

1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1/2 cup dried parsley

1/2 cup dried basil

1 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Italian salad dressing

1 tablespoon garlic powder

Mix all ingredients well. Roll into balls and bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes. For easy clean-up, line pan with foil before baking. Makes about 30 meatballs, but extra meatballs freeze well.
