Best Ever Baked Meatballs

I found this recipe randomly on Pinterest and decided to give it a try for our New Years party. Suffice it to say, it was a hit and disappeared within minutes! The ingredients are easy to have on hand, especially if you have a basil plant. It takes a max of 10 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to bake. Easy shmeasy and tres yummy. I like to make my meatballs a little smaller then the picture I took (trial and error; Ping Pong sized are the best) and they are great on their own as an appetizer or with spaghetti and sauce.

Best Ever Baked Meatballs
1lb hamburger
2 eggs, beaten with 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 cup panko or bread crumbs (I use panko)
1 small onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup minced fresh basil

Mix all ingredients with hands. Form into ping pong ball sized meatballs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until a nice crust has formed and meatballs are cooked through.
