Easy Baked Meatballs

I just recently made this recipe and really liked it.  It is basic and simple.  I had no idea what to make one night for dinner.  Sat down to check my emails and found this recipe in my inbox from my sister.  45 minutes later, we were eating them for dinner.
These were a snap to throw together and can be used in a few different ways.  We used them in Meatball Sandwiches (toss them in this sauce and put 'em on a bun).  You could make Spaghetti and Meatballs.  You could make a Meatball Appetizer, either BBQ Sauce or a Sweet Chili Type Sauce.  The next time I make them I plan on doubling the recipe and freezing half.

Easy Baked Meatballs

Yield: Makes 4 dozen


  • 1 1/2  pounds  ground beef
  • 1  large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4  cup  quick-cooking oats, uncooked
  • 3/4  cup  milk
  • 1  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  teaspoon  Italian seasoning
  • 1/4  teaspoon  pepper
  • 3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  paprika
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt


Combine first 7 ingredients; shape into 1-inch balls.
Combine all-purpose flour, paprika, and salt. Gently roll meatballs in flour mixture, and place on a lightly greased rack in a foil-lined 13- x 9-inch pan.
Bake at 400° for 25 to 30 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with your favorite sauce.
NOTE: To freeze, cool completely, and seal in an airtight container. To serve, place in a single layer on a baking sheet; bake at 400° for 10 to 15 minutes.

  1. Thank you for sharing yet another easy recipe. I will be making them this weekend!

  2. Your welcome!
    I checked out your site and have been wanting to make the crockpot yogurt. Thanks for the step by step!

  3. Definitely trying this one. Have you made them with ground turkey or just beef?

  4. I made them with beef. I need to try ground turkey..I've tried it in chili and didn't like the taste.:(
