EASY Meatloaf/Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1/2 package chicken stuffing mix
1/2 cup water
1-2 eggs
1/4 tsp pepper
2-3 cloves garlic, minced (opt)
1/2 to 1 onion, chopped (opt)
1/2 Tbs parsley (opt)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (meatballs only-opt)
1/2-1 cup ketchup or BBQ sauce (meatloaf only-can mix in some of this with ingredients and put some on top of meatloaf too)

Mix all ingredients.

Meatloaf: Put in a loaf pan. Cook 350 for 1 to 1-1/4 hours. Pour off excess fat 15 minutes prior to removing from oven and add brown sugar and ketchup to top of loaf. Let cook remaining 15 minutes.

Meatballs: Shape into meatballs and put on foil lined cookie sheet. Cook 20-30 minutes. Turn halfway during baking if desired.

This recipe is great because the stuffing makes it taste great and then you can add in the optional ingredients to accentuate the flavor to your liking!

This was kind of dry as meatloaf, but I froze it so that may have been why. As meat balls it is amazing.
