Homemade Meatballs


  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and finely chop the onion. (Or use dried onions - they work just as well!) Mix the onion, beef, bread crumbs, milk, garlic powder, pepper and egg in a large bowl with your hands. Really get in there and mix it up! And then shape the mixture into thirty one-inch meatballs.
  3. Place the meatballs in an ungreased rectangular pan. Bake uncovered about 15 minutes or until beef in center of meatball is no longer pink and juice of the beef is clear.

At this point it's up to you how you want to serve them.

For a guys night (or even a casual party), I recommend throwing them into a crock pot with a few jars of sauce and some fresh chopped garlic, and leaving it on low for the rest of the night. Set some hoagie rolls, sliced mozzarella cheese, and some parmesan out with a stack of paper plates. Your man and his friends will be good for the night.
