Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24
  • 2 pound ground beef
  • ½ c. bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp. season salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste (or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. chili paste (or 1 tsp. chili powder)
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ c. mozzarella, grated
  • ½ c. barbecue sauce
  1. In a mixing bowl whisk eggs. Add remaining ingredients, except barbecue sauce. Stir gently until combined.
  2. Using a cookie scoop (mine is about 2 T size) form meat into meatballs. Set in a greased baking pan.
  3. At this point you can either refrigerate meatballs to be baked later or bake immediately.
  4. When you are ready to bake meatballs, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake meatballs uncovered for 18-20 minutes depending on the size of your meatballs. Baste meatballs with barbecue sauce and return to the oven for 3-5 more minutes.
  5. If you are feeling fancy garnish with fresh herbs. If not they are going to be amazing just the way they are!
