I've been teaching microwave cooking classes for over 10 years. These meatballs always get people excited about using their microwaves. The recipe is easy enough for kids to prepare on their own.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 envelope spaghetti sauce mix
- In a bowl, combine beef and sauce mix. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place in a shallow 2-qt. microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Rotate a quarter turn. Microwave 1 minute longer or until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Editor's Note: Add Spaghetti Meatballs to your favorite spaghetti sauce and serve over noodles with garlic bread and salad. They also make a great snack.
Editor's NoteThis recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
