Baked Meatballs


  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrot
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oats (old fashioned or quick-cooking)
  • 1/4 cup skim or 1% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 pound lean ground meat (any type, 15% fat or less)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 °F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients except ground meat.
    Add the ground meat and mix in evenly.
  3. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 21 (about 2-inch) meatballs.
    Arrange the meatballs on the baking sheet with space between each one. Bake in 2 batches or on 2 baking sheets if needed. Wash hands with soap and water after touching raw meat and eggs.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through (165 °F with a food thermometer) and the outsides are browned.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
