Easy Homemade Meatballs

I pretty much love any kind of Italian food. And who doesn’t love a good meatball? These meatballs are easy to make and best of all, you can freeze them! They are great on top of spaghetti or as a quick snack. (my kids love these!) They are packed with flavor and would make any Italian mama proud!

HOMEMADE MEATBALLS

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup Italian seasoned dried bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine all ingredients. Mix well. Try not to squeeze the mixture through your fingers, but just combine, as “squeezing” will give your meatball a tough texture.

To make evenly sized meatballs, turn mixture out on a cutting board and shape it into a rectangle. Pat down until it is perfectly shaped. Using a sharp knife, cut mixture into 24 squares. (or less if you like a bigger meatball) Roll each square into a ball. Place on an aluminum lined jelly roll pan.

Bake for 14-18 minutes.

  3. Making these now. I used ground turkey, fresh parmesan (only because I had a lot that needed to be used up), onion flakes and added some dried parsley just for color. I also doubled the recipe. I used a cookie scoop and then just rolled them into a ball. Second batch I realized I should have sprayed the foil with cooking spray (probably because I used ground turkey) I cooked mine for 8 minutes then turned over for another 7 minutes. I was able to make 53 meatballs. They were perfect. I’m freezing them for Christmas day to use in a different Pinterest recipe I found, Bourbon Meatballs. I would definitely make these again. Easy, taste great and no unnecessary ingredients like most store bought meatballs. Glad I pinned this!

  4. I JUST made these and drove my husband and boys bananas making them wait to taste them until I finished the sauce and pasta. They smell SO good!! PS, I fried them in a mix of half a tbsp of bacon grease and olive oil. I NEVER in a lifetime thought I’d be using bacon grease for anything, but then I married my husband and BAM! 8yrs later, I’m using bacon grease to FRY meatballs LOL
