  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp season salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce


  • In a mixing bowl whisk eggs. Add remaining ingredients, except barbecue sauce. Stir gently until combined.
  • Using a cookie scoop (mine is about 2 T size) form meat into meatballs. Set in a greased baking pan.
  • At this point you can either refrigerate meatballs to be baked later or bake immediately.
  • When you are ready to bake meatballs, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake meatballs uncovered for 18-20 minutes depending on the size of your meatballs. Baste meatballs with barbecue sauce and return to the oven for 3-5 more minutes.
  • If you are feeling fancy garnish with fresh herbs. If not they are going to be amazing just the way they are!
