Baked Meatballs

Recipe modified by Strive for Wellness®

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 6


1 and ½ pounds lean ground beef
⅓ cup breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 egg
2 tablespoons water
6 ounces mozzarella cheese cut into ½ inch cubes
Cooking spray


  1. Preheat the broiler. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat the foil with cooking spray.
  2. Place the beef, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, egg and water in a bowl; mix until thoroughly combined. You may need to add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to get a smooth mixture.
  3. Take approximately 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture and roll it into a ball. Press a cube of cheese into the ball of meat, making sure that the meat completely surrounds the cheese. Place the meatball on the sheet pan and repeat with remaining meat and cheese.
  4. Spray the tops of the meatballs with cooking spray. Broil for 10 minutes or until meatballs are just done — do not overcook or the cheese filling may start to spill out.
  5. Serve meatballs with marinara sauce and pasta or however you like.
