Bindy's Bland Meatballs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by MsBindy

Most of my family does not like spicy food. So, if you are looking for a spicy meatball, this is not the recipe for you. It is a basic meatball and quite easy to make. To keep my meatballs of uniform size, and not too large, I use a 'medium' cookie scoop. The medium scoop is just over a Tablespoon. So, the end result is a small-medium size meatball...not those gigantic meatballs that some people like.

very good I want to make it because my daughter in law is pregnant and should be on a bland diet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crumble the beef into a large bowl.
  2. Mix in the grated Parmesan, bread crumbs, parsley flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Mix in eggs, one at a time. If your eggs are jumbo, you probably only need 3 eggs. If they are smaller, you'll want 4 eggs.
  4. Add about 1/4 cup milk to help moisture. Use a little more or less as needed. You want the meat to be able to stick together when you form balls, but it shouldn't be so wet it is mushy.
  5. Lightly grease 2 9*12 baking dishes.
  6. Form meat mixture into balls. As mentioned in my intro, I use a medium size cookie scoop, so that I have uniform size. If you use a scoop, make sure to press the meat in tightly. You don't want a loosely packed meatball, or it will fall apart.
  7. Bake the meatballs at 375 F for 15 minutes. Turn the meatballs (I use a fork), and then bake for another 15 minutes.
  8. To further reduce any latent grease, I put them on absorbent paper towels for a few minutes before serving.
