I have been wanting to make meatballs for some time now. I finally had the chance to try this recipe for dinner tonight. They turned out suprisingly well!! They were also extremely quick and easy to make and were perfectly moist but not mushy at all. These will definitely become a main dinner for us!

Italian Meatballs (makes approx 20)


1 lb. ground lean sirloin
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
1 Tbsp fresh parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan
Pasta sauce

Preheat the oven to 400*F. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl by hand. Roll raw meatballs into about the size of a golf ball. Place in a shallow ovenproof dish, side by side. Bake for 20mins, turning half way.

Heat the sauce in a medium size saucepan. Once warmed, add the meatballs to the sauce and combine gently. Serve with pasta of your choice.
