  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
  • Scoop the meat mixture using a spoon or cookie scoop to form into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake uncovered for 17 to 20 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle. Turn halfway through, to prevent bottoms from browning.
  • Serve with spaghetti using our delicious Marinara Sauce.
