Homemade Italian Meatballs


  • 1 pound hamburger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • dash of pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (4 tablespoons dried parsley)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs (regular or Italian)
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 eggs


  • Mix all in large bowl and roll into balls (about 2 inches across).
  • Place in 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour or until browned.
  • Note: Make sure your meatballs are about the same size so that they cook at the same rate.


Freezer instructions: Bake as normal, then when cool, place in a freezer bag. When ready to serve, just defrost and then re-heat. If I’m simmering them in sauce, I just stick them in the crockpot frozen since my sauce will heat for several hours.
