Ingredients

  • 1&1/3 lb ground meatloaf mix (equal parts beef, pork and veal)
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup parmeson cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup romano cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in a medium bowl, and mix with hands until everything is incorporated. (Do not overwork, or meatballs will be tough).
  • Form into golfball sized meatballs (will make about 22-24), and place in a single layer in a pan. (Parchment paper makes for easier cleanup).
  • Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
  • Use immediately by heating in sauce, or freeze until needed.
