Meatballs( --for Meatball Subs)

2lbs ground turkey (or lean beef)
  2 eggs

1 T Worcestershire sauce opt (or fish sauce opt)

  2/3 cup ketchup, tomato sauce, or spaghetti sauce

1 t basil

1 t oregano

1 1/1 t garlic powder

1 medium onion, chopped fine

  1 cup quick oats and/or bread crumbs

Mix together and place on cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 22-25 minutes, until juices run clear and meat has browned.

Heat 2 cups spaghetti sauce and add half the meatballs for sandwiches.
(Freeze the other half for another meal later!)

-I usually make in bulk, freeze then reheat in Homemade Spaghetti Sauce for these sandwiches. It averages out to about $2.25 per meal for my whole family for the meat.-


Served topped with Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.
 Tip: If using meatballs for non-Italian dishes, leave out the basil and oregano.
For the bread, I often use my Four Loaves of French Bread recipe, slicing them up in different sizes so the kids wouldn't have such a tough time with them. I also had lots of leftovers.

We love meatball subs over here (actually I don't because I rarely eat hamburger) but they are so easy to whip up for a hot meal. I have been using your ideas for lunch meals as I rarely eat lunch myself but I never know what to feed the rest of the family.
