Just like my grandma used to make- oh wait. My Gramma is German, she didn't make this. So here's how I did. (full disclosure, I don't really measure)

Oven Roasted Meatballs
1 lb of ground turkey/venison/beef/pork/veal
ground thyme
Chopped garlic
Parmesan cheese
bread crumbs
1 large egg
onion powder (or a bit of onion soup mix, or 1/4 of a chopped yellow/white onion)
a few tablespoons of olive oil (more for leaner meats)
a squirt of ketchup

Mix all that together into a large bowl (USE YOUR HANDS) and add bread crumbs as needed to dry out the "paste". Mold into slightly larger than a ping pong ball sized meatballs, and place into a oiled baking dish. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 min or so then remove and turn (with a tongs) and rearrange to ensure even cooking. After 20 more min, do that 1 more time. Then leave them in until they're gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside. (oh and I used a gravy mix... for SHAME)

Roasted Potatoes and Parsnips

chop up potatoes and parsnips, toss together with olive oil salt and pepper, put in oven until crispy (yeah that one is easy)

Roasted Broccoli

Really? (I'll give you a hint, its shredded Pecorino cheese on top, don't use any salt if using that super-salty cheese).
