Baked Meatballs

I used to struggle with meatballs because they would fall apart while pan frying, or become overly burnt on the outside, yuk.  About two years ago I finally discovered a fantastic meatball recipe to use with a scrumptious Sunday Gravy, but they are extremely time consuming, and are very fatty.  Baking your meatballs is a quick and easy way to reduce fat and also your time in the kitchen.  I found this recipe on Pinterest, so decided to give it a try. If you don't mind a slightly flat bottom on your meatball, this recipe is easy and great.  Here is my version:

Baked Meatballs
1lb lean hamburger
2 eggs, beaten with 1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 small onion, minced
1 Tablespoon minced garlic (I use the squeeze bottle to save time)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper 
1 teaspoon basil

Mix all ingredients with hands. Form into golf ball sized meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve with your favorite pasta and sauce or build a meatball sub, yummy!
