Homemade Meatballs

 Unfortunately I don't know who to credit for this recipe. I found it on pinterest and tried it. The meatballs were nice an big and tender. After I made them I thought a great addition would be 1/4- 1/2 c. ricotta cheese. Yum!

Baked Meatballs


 1lb hamburger
2 eggs, beaten with 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup panko or bread crumbs
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
 1/4 cup minced fresh basil 
 1/4 -1/2 cup ricotta cheese (optional)

Mix all ingredients with hands. Form into golfball sized meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Add to your favorite pasta and sauce and voila!

Note: If adding ricotta meatballs will be more unstable so handle with care!
