Meatballs on a Stick
- 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).
Mix it Up:
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt, pepper, and the egg. Get your hands in there and mix it all together until it forms a lovely, well-blended mixture.
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.
- Place the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pop them in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and cooked through.
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:
- Arrange your Meatballs on a Stick on a festive platter, and watch the kids dive in. You can even set up a dipping station with marinara sauce, barbecue sauce, or whatever your little ones love.
