  • 1 lb. grass fed beef I used 80% lean
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 medium shallot grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or sub with tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/2 teaspoon regular table salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix gently to combine.
  • Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop, scoop 2 tablespoons of the ground beef mixture and form into a ball, then place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining meat, placing the meatballs a few inches apart.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, checking for doneness after 15 minutes, or until an instant read thermometer registers 160 degrees. Remove from heat and cover loosely with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Enjoy as appetizers or with your favorite sauce!


  • Pro tip:  Prep the meatballs a day or two in advance and cover with plastic wrap, then allow to come to room temperature 1 hour before you plan to bake them.  They may also be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • Oven times vary, so I recommend checking the meatballs for doneness after 15 minutes.  Cooking time will also vary depending on the size of your meatballs.
  • This recipe is easily doubled to feed a crowd or freeze half for later.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
