Easy Meatballs

Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 24 meatballs
Author Lisa B.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large egg slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced parsley

Instructions

To bake the meatballs:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the breadcrumbs and milk in a large mixing bowl. Let stand for about 5-10 minutes until the breadcrumbs are soggy.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl. Mix together until everything is thoroughly combined. You can use a spoon, but I think the best way to mix meatball ingredients without overmixing is to use your hands.
  • Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll the meat mixture into approximately 1 ½ - inch balls. Arrange the meatballs on the baking sheet. You don’t have to worry about them spreading, but you also don’t want them touching.
  • Bake the meatballs for about 15-20 minutes until they are cooked through a no longer pink.

To freeze the meatballs:

  • Arrange the formed meatballs on a cooking tray. Place the cooking tray with the uncooked meatballs on a flat surface in the freezer. Allow meatballs to freeze completely, then place them in a freezer safe container or plastic bag. When you are ready to cook them, only pull out as many as you need.
