[Recipes] The Best Meatballs EVER!

ok, nothing says the northwoods of wisconsin like eating fresh venison the week after gun hunting closes for deer season.

this weekend while we were up in spooner, wisconsin, i watched my man’s father butcher a few deer in the basement. we took home a giant bag full of meat, needless to say.

after letting the kids sleep in and go to school late today, i really didn’t feel like doing much [though i got a ton of laundry done, the dishes done, the bedroom cleaned, shopped for houses and redesigned two blogs…], i did decide to make a home cooked meal for my man when he got done with his eight hour day.

so here’s what i came up with…. meatballs! i made a standard spaghetti and meatballs with garlic toast… but it was the homemade meatballs that stole the show!

here’s the recipe!

1 lb vension with added bacon [ok, i realize this is a specialty, just venison is fine… or ground beef! the bacon just adds a kick!]
3/4 pkg onion soup mix
1 TBSP milk
1 egg
dash pepper
dash salt
bread crumbs to taste

preheat to 350
put wax paper or foil on baking sheet.
spray with cooking spray.
mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
add bread crumbs to taste.
enough that they will hold their shape.
roll into balls.
place onto baking sheet.
bake for 30-35 min until cooked through.
no need to turn.
