Italian Square Meatballs

Recipe by ClareVH
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil (heavy-duty is best); spray foil with non-stick spray.
  • Beat egg in a large bowl, mix in all remaining ingredients (hands work best; I wear latex gloves).
  • Shape the beef mixture into an 8-inch square on the foil-lined pan and cut into 36 squares; do not separate squares.
  • (I recommend using a pizza wheel or metal dough scraper to cut the squares - you are less likely to cut through the foil and mar the pan.).
  • Bake at 425 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center.
  • Cut apart meatballs (again I prefer to use a pizza wheel or metal dough scraper).
  • Use as needed in any recipe calling for meatballs.
  • Freezing Tip: Freeze meatballs individually first, then separate into recipe-sized portions and place in freezer containers or freezer bags; Use within 2 months.
