Debby's Meatballs

Savory and tasty meatballs that can be prepared in your food processor for speed of preparation.

1 C finely-chopped walnuts
1 C cracker crumbs
1 C finely-chopped onion
1/2 C grated cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground sage
5 large eggs*

If you don't want to do all the chopping by hand, use your food processor, even your blender. The walnuts and crackers blend very well. To blend onions, put about 2 C water in your blender and quickly pulse to chop the onion. Drain.

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients after they have been chopped, etc. Stir and form into balls.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, fry meatballs in a small amount of oil until golden brown.

*Lite Version Substitution

1 1/4 C egg substitute

Serving Suggestions: These can be placed in a baking dish in the oven with your favorite sauce. I like to put them in a large skillet on the stove over medium-high heat with the following sauce:

In a small bowl, mix 1 can tomato soup and 1 1/2 cans water. Beat until smooth. Add to the meatballs and simmer for 20 minutes over medium-high heat uncovered. The sauce will boil down and become thicker.

Servings: 12
