Some tweaked out meatballs turned out pretty good if ya love garlic n cheese. Easy to knock out and depending on the head count of your herd, plenty leftover to freeze or make some sandwiches. The gravy is homemade and one I hope to figure out how to make available. The issue making it is the cook time so I won’t go into it for now. Personally I like Prego gravy in a pinch but whatever you dig go with that one. Note there is no salt added to balls because I figured the parm and pepperoni would take care of it. It did.

The Build

Ball Bake

  1. Start oven at 350 degrees
  2. Take a cookie sheet and lay parchment paper over it.
  3. If you have a grate that will fit on cookie sheet put that on there too.. Otherwise you can put balls on parchment.
  4. Get out a pretty good sized bowl.
  5. Scramble eggs in a smaller bowl.
  6. Dump all the “Ball Ingredients” in large bowl (eggs too).
  7. Mix well with hands. This will take a little time and make hands frosty. Keep going champ mix it good.
  8. Roll ball mixture to whatever size you want. Mine are about 2 ½ inches.
  9. Place evenly on cookie sheet until full.
  10. Throw in oven and cook for 30 minutes and check for problems.
  11. Shut door and cook for another 30 minutes.
  12. Done

Have it your way 🙂

  1. Fill pot of water to boil pasta.
  2. Add some olive oil. This will help it not stick together.
  3. Add salt, don’t be scared. When I boil pasta I make the water semi salty. Not brine but taste-able.
  4. Cook pasta according to the package.
  5. Strain, add another drip or 2 of olive oil, and stir into pasta.
  6. Plate everything up. Sprinkle some parm and fresh basil.
  7. Wala!


Woops! Just realized there is no Texas Butter in here…

➕ Nutrition - About

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. None of these recipes came from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits. If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
