Grandma's Homemade Meatballs

1 lb. ground lean beef
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 C. parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/2 C. bread crumbs
1/8 C. milk
chopped parsley to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 C. canola oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  3. Begin to roll meatballs to desired size.
  4. Heat a non-stick skillet and add canola oil.
  5. Fry each meatball to golden brown (it is okay if they are not yet cooked through).
  6. Remove meatballs to a paper towel covered plate to drain while cooking the remaining meatballs.
  7. Place meatballs on tray and bake for 30 minutes.

This recipe will also make great hamburgers.  For every pound of ground beef it makes 4 good sized hamburgers.


  1. Place on sub rolls with Mozzarella cheese slices for delicious meatball subs.

  2. Form into patties and these make great hamburgers!
