Meatless Meatballs!

 This week I participated at Just Another Meatless Monday at Hey What For Dinner Mom?  This week Laura posted a great recipe that I just had to try right away!

Vegetarian Barbecue Bites (Meatless Meatballs)
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 cup of crushed corn flakes
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnut
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded cheese  (I used old cheddar)
  • 2 TBSP oil
  • Barbecue sauce to cover or for dipping**recipe**great recipe for barbecue sauce without hfcs in it!  (I used bottled sauce that I had on hand, click recipe to see Laura's!)
  1. Mix all the ingredients except oil, let stand for 30 minutes
  2. If making barbecue sauce you can assemble it now and let it simmer on low
  3. Then over medium high heat heat 1 TBSP oil in a frying pan
  4. Make 18 patties or meatballs out of the cheese and walnut mixture
  5. Cook 9 at a time until they are browned on both sides
  6. Put them in a 9x13 baking dish
  7. Cook remaining patties the same way
  8. Pour barbecue sauce over the top
  9. Cover with foil bake 15-20 minutes
Now I did follow Laura's directions completely.  They really did taste like real meatballs with walnuts in them.  Next time I am going to try not to fry them at all as I did find they were to greasy for me.  I will let you know next time I make them, if baking work or not...if you try it, let me know too!
As for the family, the kids absolutely loved them!!!!  So It will be a part of our meals, more considered as "treat", and for entertaining!
