  • 2 lbs ground meat
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non stick spray.
  • Combine all ingredients in a very large bowl. Gently mix until just together, taking care to not squeeze the meat. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, form balls; they don’t have to be perfect.
  • Bake on the cookie sheet. turning them once at 10 minute mark. At 15 minutes, check the temp (I like 165 for all meats), usually 15 does it for me. Serve as soon as you can physically eat them.
