Did you know that for every day of the year, there is a Food item that is dedicated to that particular day? For example January 1 is “National Bloody Mary Day”. For fun, every now and then, I will let you know what the national food of the day is my posts. That list definitely provides me with inspiration in the kitchen.
Today is actually January 1, but this post will be published the next day. The hubby and I actually went out today to run errands and it was practically a ghost town almost everywhere we went.
While we were at Target, I decided that I would make meatball sandwiches for dinner tonight, but I am now going to put a twist on them and make them using bloody mary mix. Well actually, V-8 juice to be specific.
I think I have started off the year with a bang. So far, the zucchini “pasta” and these meatballs are fantastic.
- 1 pound 93/7 lean ground beef
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1¼ cup V-8 juice
- ½ cup bread crumbs
- hoagie buns
- Combine Worcestershire sauce, ¼ cup of the V-8 juice,and the bread crumbs
- Fold in the ground beef.
- Form into 1.0 ounce meatballs (for a total of 16)
- Spray a non stick saute pan over medium high heat and brown the meatballs balls
- Put in a baking dish and pour rest of Bloody Mary mix over meatballs.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to blend flavors.
What do you think about my twist on traditional meatball sandwich?
Have a great day!
