  • 1 lb ground beef I use 90% lean
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal or Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup diced fresh basil chiffionade the basil and then chop into smaller pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • For this batch, I used the Panko bread crumbs. Usually I use oatmeal but I didn't have any on hand this time.
  • Form the ground beef mixture into meatballs about the size of a golf ball.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or till done.
  • Serve with marinara sauce for spaghetti or use in making meatball subs.
