Pat’s Italian Meatballs
My co-workers love Meatballs. I make them periodically in the office in a crock-pot for them. The fun thing about meatballs is that you can change them up and get a completely different flavor. You can put them over pasta, over subs, over toast, eat them by themselves with sides, and they list goes on and on.
I thought that I would make them last night for Sunday Supper. Sunday Suppers are good for good ‘ole southern comfort food meals. I made Italian Style and served with black-eyed peas and crinkle oven fries.
You can find great options for Meatballs at your local supermarket. There are gluten free options as well as a variety of base choices. When making them Italian Meatball Recipe I go with the Italian Meatballs by Cooked Perfect Italian Meatballs.
The Cooked Perfect Brand are delicious and offer all-natural choices as well as gluten free. You take them right from the freezer into the crock-pot and let them simmer on medium/high and they are done in about three and a half hours. At work, I put them on at 8:00 and they are ready for lunch served at 11:30. For dinner, I put them on at 2:30 and they were ready by dinner at 6:00.
1 pkg of the Cooked Perfect Italian Meatballs (I use the 24 count – which gives you larger meatballs)
1 jar – Bertolli Tomato & Basil Sauce
Lowry’s Garlic Pepper
¼ cup sugar – (I add to take out the tart taste of the tomatoes plus gives them a sweet savory flavor)
¼ Cup of Stella Fresh Parmesan Cheese
Parsley Flakes for garnishment
¼ cup water
Place Frozen Meatballs in Crock-Pot
Add Salt/Pepper and I use generations amount of Lowry’s Garlic Pepper (5-6 good sprinkles over each)
Pour entire jar of Bertolli Tomato & Basil Sauce over Meatballs
Add ¼ cup water and stir
Let meatballs simmer on high for about 2 hours. Stir periodically if you can. Add in the ¼ cup of sugar and stir in.
Add in the ¼ cup of Stella Fresh Parmesan Cheese
Garnish with parsley flakes and serve
P.S. I add more Lowry's Garlic Pepper to mine right before I serve.
NOTE: If you are serving them on subs – Add 3-4 meatballs on Sub Bread
Top with Kraft Shredded Parmesan and Mozzarella Cheese
Place in oven at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes
Delicious either way.
There is nothing like a great breakfast casserole for a good Sunday Supper meal. Especially when it is storming outside like it is here in Little Rock, Arkansas today. This casserole can be made the night before or at least 2.5 hours prior to baking. It takes about 30 minutes to get it ready, place in fridge for two hours and then take out and bake.
Who doesn't like a good breakfast casserole? This one is yummy and includes hash browns on the bottom in lieu of the bread. Serve it up with a good glass of Orange Juice or Milk and this hearty meal is good to go!
Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
Take Casserole out of Refrigerator
Place in Oven and bake until bubbling and golden, about 30-35 minutes.
Cut and Serve! Delicious
