Easy Homemade Meatballs


I sent out a request for recommended recipes and my son’s girlfriend sent me a recipe for her favourite meatballs. I like to double the recipe and freeze some for future meals. These can be used in spaghetti sauce, sweet sauces and are delicious in a meatball sub.

Easy Homemade Meatballs

• 1 cup milk
• 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1 teaspoon onion powder
• ½ cup plain breadcrumbs
• ½ teaspoon black pepper
• 2 eggs
• 2 pounds ground beef
• 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets (baking pans will work if you don’t have rimmed cookie sheets) with foil and set aside. Place all ingredients into a large bowl and gently mix together with your hands, careful not to over-mix. Just squish it all together a few times to combine. Using a cookie scoop or your hands, divide meat mixture into desired size balls. As long as they are uniform, they can be as large or small as you like. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-14 minutes, depending on the size. Be sure to check for doneness. Serve hot with your favorite sauce. TO FREEZE: Allow meatballs to cool completely on the baking sheets. Once cool, scrape the fat away from each ball and seal tightly in a freezer safe bag or airtight container and place in the freezer.
