Sunday night dinners: Mushroom balls 

What you need: 

3 tbsp olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped fine

4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup chopped parsley

20 oz mushrooms, finely chopped

2 eggs

1 cup quick rising oats

1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp

1 (24) oz jar of marinara sauce or slow cooker marinara sauce

Parsley to garnish

1/3 grated Parmesan cheese

What you do:

1. In a large skillet, saute the onion in olive oil on medium-low heat for about 7 minutes.

2. Add mushrooms, increase the heat to medium-high and cook them for 10-15 minutes. You’ll need to wait until the water evaporates and then keep cooking the mushrooms until they brown nicely.

3. Add garlic, stir, and transfer the mushrooms into the mixing bowl. Let them cool down.

4. Add the rest of the ingredients excluding marinara and parsley to the mixture.

5. When ready to cook, using a tablespoon as a measure, form small balls from the mixture. Fry the balls in a small amount of vegetable oil until they turn brown or bake then in a preheated oven at 400F for 15 minutes. 
6. Add marinara sauce to the medium saucepan. Place the meatballs on top and cook the meatballs in the sauce on a low heat for about 15 more minutes.

Garnish with grated Parmesan or fresh parsley. Enjoy!
