Ingredients for 16 small meatballs:

 

(recipe can easily be doubled!)

 

1 pound white mushrooms, chopped into very small pieces

 

2 tbsp olive oil

 

pinch of salt to sauté mushrooms

 

1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup minced onions

 

4 minced garlic cloves

 

1/2 cup instant oatmeal

 

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

 

packed 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley

 

1 ounce by weight, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, very finely grated on a microplane

 

(Note: it looks like a ton of cheese in the video, but it was only 1-oz. Because I used a microplane to grate it, it created a huge looking pile of cheese. It would be about 1/2 cup if you measure, but use weight for this ingredient!)

 

1 tsp salt

 

freshly ground black pepper and cayenne to taste
pinch of dried oregano

 

2 eggs

 

3 cups of your favorite pasta sauce.

 

*Let mixture sit overnight in fridge. Bake meatballs for 12-15 at 450 degrees F., then simmer in sauce for 30-60 minutes before serving.
