Meatballs/Peach Crisp



12-ounces tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoons salt, optional
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
4 pounds ground beef

In a large mixing bowl, combine first eight ingredients.
Add ground beef and mix well. Shape into meatballs (use
a small cookie scoop if available) and place on broiler
pan so grease can drain while cooking. Bake uncovered in
350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Divide into meal-sized
portions. To prevent from freezing into a solid meatball-
mass, freeze individually on cookie sheets and then place
in freezer bags. Label and freeze. To serve meatballs,
thaw completely, and reheat with your choice of sauces.
