Baked Meatballs


  • 1 pound ground beef, 90% lean (or ground turkey)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk, 1% (or non-fat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


1. Mix all ingredients, shape into balls (about 24 meatballs).

2. Arrange on baking sheets that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

3. Bake at 425 °F for 12-15 minutes. It is best to use a food safety thermometer to check for doneness. It should read 160 °F for ground beef and 165 °F for ground turkey.

4. If meatballs are being saved for future use, chill rapidly; package in amounts needed per meal and freeze immediately.
