Ingredients

  • 1 Lb Ground Beef

  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF
  2. Mix all ingredients together. Be sure not to over-mix to prevent tough meatballs.
  3. Roll mixture into balls (approximately the size of golf balls). Wet hands with water during the process to prevent meat from sticking to hands. Transfer to a greased baking dish.
  4. Tuck whole garlic cloves and rosemary sprigs down in between meatballs.
  5. Bake at 400ºF for 25-30 minutes (depending on size). Broil on high 3-4 minutes to brown tops.

Wonky Wonderful adds a couple of notes:

-- For extra lean ground meats use 1/4 cup almond meal to avoid dry meatballs.

-- Makes 18-20 meatballs depending on size. Nutrition info is based on approximately 4 meatballs per serving.
