Foodie Friday: Meatballs

I recently made these and another hubby favorite! Since its just the two of us, there is lots of leftovers with this recipe! This recipe can easily go with any pasta and a side dish or for meatball subs!!! I included some in the process pictures, so you can see how the recipe goes along. Its super easy to make and I hope you will give it a try. Let me know how it works out and share your pictures too!


1.5 pounds Lean Ground Beef
3/4 cup Bread Crumbs
1 small Onion
1 Egg
1/2 cup Milk
2 tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp dried Oregano
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Dice onion and put into mixing bowl.
3. Add egg and milk to bowl and mix well.
4. Add ground beef, bread crumbs, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper to bowl.
5. Mix with hands or fork. 
6. Spray non stick cooking spray on a baking sheet.
7. Form small balls with the meat mixture and place on baking sheet.
8. Bake for 20-30 minutes till golden brown and cooked throughly. 

*This recipe makes a ton of meatballs. I only made about 12 meatballs and saved the remaining of the meat mixture for later in the week for meatball subs! 
*Make sure you dice/cut the onion into little pieces :) 
*Don't overmix the meat mixture or your meatballs will be turn out tough.
*Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 just came out at redbox, turn this meal into a cute date night with hubby or have the kids help make the meatballs and make it a family date night!
*Original recipe from Williams and Sonoma Cookbook.
