  2. 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  3. 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  4. 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 190°C.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all the meatball ingredients – ground meat, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan, parsley, milk, egg, minced garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and basil. Mix the ingredients until well combined.
