Baked Meatballs

  • Stir together beef, pork, onion, egg, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and egg in a large bowl just until combined — don’t overmix.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Shape meat into 1-1.5″ balls and place 1″ apart on baking sheet. (I get about 35 1.5″ meatballs)
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, just until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
  • Set aside to cool slightly. (*At this point, once cooled, you can freeze up to 3 months for a variety of uses).
