Last weekend I had a serious craving for spaghetti and meatballs in a simple tomato sauce.  These are quick to make and delicious.  We had extras and used them for meatball subs the next day.  (Add a little provolone or mozzarella and bread to your shopping list!)

Serves 4.

Simple Beef Meatballs

1 lb grass fed ground beef

1 egg

1 grated shallot

1/2 cup bread crumbs

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes

s + p

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Gently combine all ingredients, avoid over mixing.  Use a heaping tablespoon to help portion and form into balls.  Place of tray and bake about 4 minutes.  Stir meatballs and bake 4 minutes more.  

Serve with tomato sauce and pasta or with bread and cheese for subs.
