  • 1 Pound Ground Sirloin
  • 1/2 Pound Ground Pork
  • 2 Large Eggs ,whisked
  • 4 Slices Italian Bread ,approximately 5 ounces, soaked in water
  • 1 Cup Seasoned Dry Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Medium Sweet Yellow Onion ,Grated
  • 4 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese ,Freshly Grated
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Chopped Parsley


  • Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F. 
  • In a medium bowl soak Italian Bread in water for 5 minutes. 
  • While bread is soaking combine remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  • Squeeze as much water out of your soaked bread as you can. Add it to your meatball mixture and mix together until combined. You don't need to go too crazy mixing your meatball mixture. Once it all looks fairly evenly distributed (no clumps of dried bread crumbs and such) your good. Sometimes less mixing is better. 
  • Roll into 2 inch sized balls and place on a baking sheet. You should get about 24 meatballs depending on the size you make them. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes then remove from oven and serve as desired.
