Classic Homemade Meatballs
Whether you're making subs or spaghetti, these classic oven-baked meatballs are perfect for all of your favorite recipes. They're perfectly juicy and flavored with delicious seasonings and parmesan cheese!
white bread, torn, crust cut off
parmesan cheese, grated
granulated onion powder
Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup! Set aside.
Place the torn bread and milk into a small bowl. Let the bread soak and absorb the milk while you combine the rest of the ingredients.
In a large bowl, add the ground beef, eggs, cheese, basil, oregano, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
Next, add the soaked bread to the rest of the ingredients. Slightly squeeze the milk out of the bread before adding it to the bowl of ingredients.
Mix all of the ingredients together until combined well. Hands are best here!
Turn the oven to broil and allow to heat for a few minutes while you roll the meatballs.
Divide and roll mixture into 14 meatballs. Place on the prepared baking sheet.
Broil meatballs for 12 minutes. You can rotate the meatballs half way through if you prefer.
Serve with your favorite marinara, or use in recipes like my meatball soup or meatball sub.
Seasonings and herbs are used very liberally to help add a lot of flavor. About 2 tablespoons of dried Italian herbs can also be used in place of the dried basil, oregano, and parsley if you prefer.
