Mini Meatballs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Seedbeads

I don't remember where I found this recipe - I've made it so often, I've memorized it. The trick to these meatballs is to only plan to use half of them - that's all I ever have left by the time I'm ready to put them in something else. It's the only time I've ever had ground beef melt in my mouth.

I thought they were good and the toddlers ate them. Substituted dried italian herbs at a lower quantity and added onion/garlic powders too. My hubby wanted them a little more brown or crispy but I used turkey so that could be it. Would use less than a tblsp of italian herbs next time and maybe try with beef. Hubby thought they were "sweet" but he always suspects that of my food...there's NO sugar in this and I don't taste sweetness at all.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix really well.
  2. Roll meat into 1" balls- at this point, you can either continue or freeze them for later use, providing your beef wasn't pre-frozen.
  3. Arrange the meatballs on a rack over a foil-lined pan (for easy clean-up).
  4. Bake in a 400ºF oven for about 10 minutes, or until meatballs are browned- you can also freeze them at this point, or use them in other dishes (or just eat them plain).
