I was never really a big meatball fan, just simply based on the fact that I have never really been a big fan of ground beef in general. All the others I’ve always had are a plain ball of ground beef. No thanks. I experimented with this a couple of different ways. In the end, this is the way that I like best. As I said before, my husband is anti-onion so I stick with the onion powder in this one. And if we’re all being honest here, as much as I like onions in things, I don’t like them in this recipe. They become a little over powering using the actual onion pieces.
I serve my meatballs a couple of different ways… on spaghetti (as shown above), hawaiian meatballs in the crock pot, sweet and spicy meatballs in the crock pot, and in meatball subs. I’ll be sure to post some of those recipes on here in the future!
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Be careful not to mix too much. Mixing the ground beef too much will make it tough. Form into small golf ball size balls and place on a foil lined baking sheet. I like to use my small cookie scoop to get uniform sized meatballs. Bake for 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven. Serve however you like!
These can also be frozen for future use.
