There are countless ways to make meatballs. Considering my visual impairment, baking meatballs (as opposed to frying them) is the safest option. I also prefer to use dry herbs and seasonings whenever possible. For example, in this particular recipe, I use onion powder instead of chopping up an actual onion. My chopping skills are good, not great, and my family does not like getting a large piece of onion in their meatballs. Using dry seasoning eliminates that. This is also what I call a “one bowl” recipe because everything is mixed in one bowl and there is minimal cleanup. Making these changes compromises none of the flavor. These meatballs will absolutely melt in your mouth!Mix all the ingredients in one bowl using your hands. If you feel the mixture is too dry, add a splash more milk. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat lightly with cooking spray. Use your hands or an ice cream scoop to form 12 large meatballs.Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, then flip the meatballs, and bake an additional 15 minutes. Simmer in sauce for a spaghetti dinner or serve on a roll with shredded mozzarella for a meatball sub.
