Baked Beef Meatballs

Serves 24


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup yellow onion minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Italian Parsley chopped
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. I use an olive oil spray.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and shape into about 24-one inch sized meatballs.
  • Spread the meatballs out on the prepared baking sheet. You will likely need to bake two batches.
  • Spray the tops of the meatballs with non-stick cooking spray before placing the sheet in the oven.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, flip each meatball and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until they are cook through.
  • Combine with your favorite marinara sauce and pasta/veggie noodles (GF option) or serve with BBQ sauce as an appetizer.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
