  • ½ cup ground beef
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbl. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¼ tsp. dried oregano
  • pinch salt & pepper
For the garlic bread batter...

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
For the meatballs...
  1. Cook spaghetti, drain, and set aside.
  2. Mix all remaining meatball ingredients, then add spaghetti.
  3. Using hands gently incorporate spaghetti into meat mixture.
  4. Form into 10 spaghetti meatballs about 1½" around and placed on foil lined baking sheet, coated with cooking spray.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn meatballs over and cook for another 10.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.
For garlic bread batter...
  1. Heat canola oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine baking mix with milk and garlic powder; mixture will be thicker than pancake batter and a little thinner than biscuit dough.
  3. When oil is up to temp (use a candy thermometer or when a piece of bread dropped in the oil sizzles and turns brown...without burning).
  4. Individually dip the meatballs in batter, completely coating them, then gently add to oil, cooking only two meatballs at a time, turning in oil to insure even cooking.
  5. When cooked to a deep brown, remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  6. Continue until all meatballs have been batter fried.
For the sauce...
  1. Prepare basic tomato sauce or open a jar of your favorite marinara sauce.
  1. Put two meatballs on each stick, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, serve with a side of marinara sauce.
