1 large onion
3 oil-packed dried tomatoes, finely snipped
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 pound lean ground beef
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt

Add ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, and salt; mix well. Shape into 12 meatballs. In a Dutch oven, brown meatballs in hot oil. Carefully drain off fat.
