Baked Meatballs

Ingredients

3 pounds Meatloaf Mix (or lean ground beef)
1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup grated yellow onion (about 1/2 a medium)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley, or 1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450°F. Line 2 baking sheets with foil and coat with nonstick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine the meat, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, eggs, milk, onion, parsley, and red pepper. Use your hands to combine all ingredients evenly. Try not to over-mix the meat, as the meatballs can get dense.
Using a medium (2-tablespoon) scoop portion out the mixture and roll into balls. Place evenly on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 15 minutes or until browned and cooked through.
