Easy Meatball Recipe

  • Author: April Anderson
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: approximately 26 meatballs 1x


These homemade meatballs are quick, easy, and great for meal prepping. You don’t need to chop anything – instead, we’re using pantry spices and seasonings to make them. Just mix, roll, and brown – that’s it!


  • 1/3 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound 85% lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Mix eggs, breadcrumbs, oregano, onion and garlic powders, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the beef and mix until well combined. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the beef mixture (approximately .80 ounce) to form each meatball ball. 
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Place the meatballs in the pan and brown them on all sides until they are cooked through. Adjust the heat to medium if needed so they don’t brown too fast. They will take about ten minutes to cook.
  3. Serve or chill the meatballs for later. You can also freeze them.


You can use ground turkey, pork, or even ground chicken for this recipe, too!
