Mamma Mia Meatballs

The kids will go nuts when they find out it’s spaghetti and meatballs for dinner

Prep Time:
30 Min
Cook Time:
20 Min
As Much As You Want


1 lb ground beef
2 tablespoons chopped basil
2 tablespoons minced Italian flat leaf parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs
1 egg
3 tablespoons Extra Virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients, except olive oil by hand; cover with plastic wrap and place mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees; remove mixture from the fridge and start rolling small meatballs (usually, a tablespoon will ensure that all of the meatballs are the same size)
  3. Roll meatballs till all the meat is done; make sure you firmly roll them and pack them (but don’t make it into a hard ball, it should feel light to the touch)
  4. Set each one on a sheet tray and don’t allow the meatballs to touch one another; keep in a single layer
  5. Drizzle the olive oil onto all of the meatballs and place in the oven for about 15-20 minutes; half way through the cooking process, remove the tray from the oven and flip over the meatballs so that each side gets brown and golden
  6. **Optional Ingredients** You can do half and half when it comes to the meat... Ground Beef, Ground Pork, Ground Veal... all are great combos and add great flavor! Try adding some shredded parmegiano regiano cheese and/or crushed fennel seeds add incredible flavor Stuff them with a spoon full of ricotta cheese or chopped basil and garlic
