Easy Homemade Meatball Recipe

easy meatball recipe

My husband is not really a great fan of pasta but since he married an Italian, he knows he’s gotta grin and bear it.  So to tempt him into my world of pasta loving, I usually bribe him with homemade meatballs.  Works every time!

This homemade meatball recipe is so simple to make and it only takes a few minutes to assemble.  I get about 12 large meatballs out of one recipe so I usually split it and freeze half for another meal.

Easy Homemade Meatballs


1 lb of ground beef (or ground turkey)
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup milk


1.  Preheat oven to 375°.  In a medium size bowl, mix together all of the ingredients.  Roll meatballs by hand into 2″ balls.

2.  Place meatballs on a baking tray and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until browned.  Remove and add to your favorite pasta sauce.

  1. I usually buy meatballs from a gourmet store and never thought about making my own. I don’t know why since I make my own meatloaf and hamburgers. It’s time for me to make some meatballs from the left over meat.

  2. This was the first time I had made meatballs, I used a different type of bread crumbs and added some onion powder and a little bit of parsley. It turned out really good and the meatballs seemed to melt in your mouth. Definitely a recipe I will use again. :)

  3. This was my first time ever making meatballs, they came out very good, moist. The only thing is I will probably add more seasoning next time, but it will be the same basic recipe. Thank you! :)

    P.S. Who doesn’t like pasta?!

  4. Great recipe! Easy and delicious. Did add sage and Mexican oregano to add my own spin to the recipe. Thank you Amanda! This Texan approves this recipe:^)
