Ingredients

1 pound (80/20) lean ground beef

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (regular or Italian)

1/3 cup finely minced onion

1/4 cup whole milk

1 large egg

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, more or less, as needed (omit if baking)

Directions

If baking, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line a baking pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.

Mix the ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, milk, egg, parsley, salt, pepper and Worcestershire. Using a 1-1/2 to 2 inch scoop, place portions on baking pan. Lightly coat hands with oil then gently shape each scoop into 1-inch balls.

Bake on the center rack of oven, for about 25 to 30 minutes, turning once halfway through.

If cooking in a skillet, heat the oil in a large skillet and cook the meatballs, turning to brown on all sides. Set aside to cool. Place into sauce or freeze. Makes about 24 meatballs, depending on size.
