Zucchini Meatballs

Need a sneaky way to get in your veggies? Or use up some fresh ones before they go bad? These meatballs are awesome! I made them using my food processor to grate the zucchini and onion and stir up the meat!

1small zucchini
1/4 small white onion
4 garlic cloves
1lb ground beef (use turkey if you want to be super healthy!)
1 egg white
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. Italian seasoning
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1/4 cup bread crumbs (the original recipe used 1/2 cup panko, which I didn't have on hand)

Grate the zucchini and onion in the food processor, using the attachment, add in garlic.
Change the blade to the S shaped plastic blade, and add in remaining ingredients.
Shape in to meatballs and place on lightly greased rack.
Bake at 400* for 20-25 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
Serve with your favorite sauce and noodles or on a hogie bun for a meatball sub!
These are a great thing to eat half of, and freeze the rest! When you are ready to eat them, pop them in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, or bake them at 350* for 20-25 minutes.
