Who Needs A Quick & Easy Homemade Meatball Recipe?
Years ago, I was a single mom and my time for cooking was limited. Basically, what I mean is that we ate a lot of grab and go meals (ew…gross, not really-but life is different now). The one thing however, I always made were my meatballs!
My son and I would spend time together on a Sunday just talking and rolling meatballs. It was awesome and looking back I miss those times with Mr. Chris. I found that during that time he would open up and talk about things going on in his world; AND I got help making meatballs!
In no time, you have a whole crap ton of meatballs that are cooked through and ready to eat either by themselves, or thrown in sauce over spaghetti, served with gravy, in a sub, etc.
SO quick and SO easy-no more cooking meatballs in batches or standing by the stovetop! This particular Homemade Baked Meatball recipe makes the best meatballs I’ve ever had. Every bite is full of flavor from the garlic, seasonings and cheese. They have so much flavor and maintain juiciness after baking. A definite winner in my house.
The best part is that thanks to the high yield amount, once they cool a bit I can divide them up in zip-lock bags and freeze them. Hence ready to go when I need them – just defrost, heat and serve! Perfection in my book!

Homemade Baked Meatballs
- 1 Pound Ground Beef
- 1 Pound Spicy ground pork
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
- 2 Tbsp Grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 Cup Plain breadcrumbs
- 1 tsp Garlic powder
- 1 tsp Onion powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Black pepper
- 1 Small Sweet onion minced
- 1 Tbsp Minced garlic
- 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Line 2 baking sheets with foil (helps for easy clean up) and set aside.
Place all ingredients into a large bowl and mix together with your hands. Just squish it all together a few times to combine.
Using a cookie scoop or your hands, divide meat mixture into desired size meatballs - As long as they are uniform, they can be as large or small as you like.
Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on the size. Be sure to check for doneness.
Serve hot with your favorite sauce over spaghetti, on a sub or however you like them.
TO FREEZE: Allow meatballs to cool completely on the baking sheets. Once cool, seal tightly in a freezer safe bag or air tight container and place in the freezer.
