New Favorite Meatballs

I made these to go with the marinara sauce. It was a good combination. I really enjoyed the meatballs. These were really easy to make.

Olive Oil Spray
2 egg whites
1/2 Cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 Cup fat-free Milk
1/2 Cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1 Tablespoon dried minced onion
1/2 Teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 Pound 96% lean ground beef

Preheat the over to 400. Lightly coat a large nonstick baking sheet with olive oil spray.

In a medium bowl, using a fork, mix together the egg whites, oats, and milk until well combined. Add the parsley, onion, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes and mix until combined. Mix in the beef until well combined.

Make 32 uniform meatballs, each about 1 1/2 diameter (use a cookie scoop or 2 tablespoons for ease). Roll the balls with your hands and arrange, not touching, on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until 7 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink inside.
