  • 1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix – overmixing makes tough meatballs!

  2. Roll meat mixture into about 24 1-inch meatballs.
  3. Place meatballs on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping meatballs halfway through, or until cooked through and lightly browned.
  5. Serve with you favorite pasta and sauce.

To pan fry:

  1. Roll meat mixture into about 24 1-inch meatballs.
  2. Pour about 1/3 inch of oil into a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add 5-6 meatballs to the pan at a time; cook for 1-2 minutes on the first side, until browned, then flip and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the other side is browned.
  4. Remove from the pan and repeat in batches until all of the meatballs are cooked.
  5. Simmer in your favorite pasta sauce for 15-20 minutes to finish cooking and serve with your favorite pasta.


  • I used ground beef and veal in my meatballs, but you could use pork in place of veal, or use all ground beef. Simply make sure that you have 1 1/2 pounds of ground meat total for the recipe.
