Today I realized I still had a large bowl of garden tomatoes to use up before they rotted. I don’t know about you, but I am sick of dealing with the garden’s summer bounty.
It was one more bowl tho so today I trudged on.
Today I’ve also included a recipe for super easy baked meatballs that you can make with ground beef or turkey , probably even chicken but I have never tried. They freeze wonderfully which is what I did with most of today’s meatballs.
2 lbs ground beef ( use what you have )
2 eggs beaten
1 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded cheese ( I used Cracker Barrel herb and garlic cheddar )
1/4 cup minced onion ( used sweet)
1 tsp garlic powder
Combine together. Form balls. Put on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins.
About 2-3 cups chopped and cored tomatoes
1/4 cup minced onion
3 cloves garlic chopped
3 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp oil
Sauté onion with oil until soft . Add garlic . Cook two mins . Add tomatoes
Simmer until tomatoes start to break down . Add the tomato paste.
Simmer low heat about an hour until tomato has cooked down and water is cooked out .
Hope you and your family enjoys these easy recipes as much as mine.
