Here's your go-to, foolproof, basic meatball recipe you'll never want to be without.
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
cup Progresso™ Italian-style bread crumbs
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
Heat oven to 400°F. Line 13x9-inch pan with foil; spray with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix all ingredients. Shape mixture into 20 to 24 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs. Place 1 inch apart in pan.
Bake uncovered 18 to 22 minutes or until no longer pink in center.
Turkey or Chicken Meatballs: Substitute 1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef. (If using ground chicken, decrease milk to 2 tablespoons.) Bake until no longer pink in center and thermometer inserted in center reads 165°F.
For evenly-sized meatballs that will cook in the same amount of time, pat meat mixture into a 6x4-inch square. Cut into 24 squares. Roll each square into a ball.
