  • Wooden skewers


  • 1 pound ground beef or your preferred meat
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large egg


Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Shape the Meatballs:

  • Roll the meat mixture into bite-sized meatballs. Pro tip: Wetting your hands a bit will prevent the mixture from sticking too much.

Bake Away:

Skewer ‘Em Up:

  • Once the meatballs are ready, let them cool for a few minutes. Then, skewer those little wonders onto wooden sticks. This step is where the fun begins – get the kids involved and let them create their own meatball masterpieces!

Serve and Enjoy:
