Mmmmm, Meatballs


1 lb. lean ground hamburger (or ground turkey)
1 egg
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs (or crushed croutons)
1/4 cup milk
1 tbsp. onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp. green pepper, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°.  Mix all ingredients together.  Shape into 1-inch balls.  Place on greased baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes.  

Great with marinara sauce over spaghetti, or as a sandwich. 

FYI, if you want to sneak veggies into your kids meals without them knowing, dishes like this are great!  My kids don't like onions and peppers, or so they think, but they love foods flavored with them.  So, as long as they aren't visible, ie: chopped really finely, they will get the flavor and vitamins!  You could also try zucchini, carrots or broccoli in these meatballs.
