Quick and Easy Homemade Meatballs

Most of the time, I take the easy way out when making spaghetti but on the day of my son’s graduation from kindergarten; he requested meatballs with his spaghetti.  He could have asked for a million other things but meatballs… What kind of mom would I be not to oblige that request… This recipe has been lingering around for a while and I finally got to use it.  He gave it two thumbs up so I hope you will enjoy it also.

  • one pound of lean ground beef (90/10) or ground turkey
  • ¼ cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • ½ cup of milk
  • 1 slice of toasted wheat bread ground to crumbs or ½ cup of bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • 2 teaspoons of parsley
  • 2 tablespoons of diced onions


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients except meat
  • In a large bowl, combine meat and mixture with your hands
  • Roll meat between your hands in small to medium-sized balls (should yield about 30 balls, you can freeze any excess meat mixture once you have made the desired number of meatballs)
  • Bake 25 minutes and enjoy!
