Best Baked Meatballs

These simple meatballs are baked so there’s less grease and the natural flavors of the meat shine though.

1 pound ground beef
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon prepared pesto (make your own Arugula Pesto via Healthy Eats)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. In
a large bowl, combine ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, and pesto; season with salt and pepper. With clean hands, gently mix well and form into approximately sixteen 1-ounce balls. Transfer to baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 155-160 degrees F. Serve with pasta and my Basic Tomato Sauce.
