  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats uncooked
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 onion grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic or one clove of garlic chopped


  • In  a large bowl combine all ingredients.  I mix it with my hands and roll into meatballs the size you like.  Spray a cookie sheet or flat pan with cooking spray.
  • Place meatballs about one inch apart and cook in preheated 400 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes.  Makes about 25 regular sized meatballs or 35 small ones. Once cooked add a jar or can of your favorite spaghetti sauce or make your own sauce.  Serve over spaghetti.


You can also make these smaller and once cooked put in crockpot with 1 cup grape jelly and 1 1/2 cups chili sauce.  Cook on low for about 5 hours and makes a great appetizer to serve at parties. These freeze well, too. Just be sure they are completely cooled before freezing and place in airtight container.
