Total Servings: 24-30


  • 1/2 of a small red onion, finely chopped 
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 cup normal breadcrumbs 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped 
  • 5 large mint leaves, finely chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano 
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil 
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/8 teaspoon Black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
  2. Put the red onion, garlic, ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, parsley, mint, oregano, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl and use your hands to mix well. Make sure the mixture is smooth and well combined. 
  3. Use a large cookie scoop to create a ball and work it into a ball using your hands. Place on a non-stick baking sheet or one that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. 
  4. Spray the meatballs with olive oil or use a small dish and a brush to brush them with olive oil. This helps them brown and crisp on the outside. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until browned and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. 
  5. Serve in a rice bowl, hummus bowl or on their own.
