Okay cheese lovers, here is the perfect meatball recipe for you! I blended two flavors, Parmesan Cheese & Dubliner Cheese, from two nationalities (Italian & Irish) in this recipe. The result was a union of exquisite flavor and pure meatball perfection; in my opinion! Two types of cheese make these meatballs super moist. Check out this recipe for a new twist on an old classic!

When I make meatballs I like to make a large batch and freeze the extra. Frozen meatballs can easily be made into meatballs subs or spaghetti and meatballs on a busy night. To freeze meatballs, flash freeze them on a baking sheet. Then add them to a freezer safe container or bag. This way the meatballs can be taken out individually and they won’t clump together.

Cheesy Baked Meatballs Recipe
  • 2 lbs. of lean ground beef
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup grated Dubliner cheese
  • 2 cups Italian bread crumbs (or panko if you prefer)
  • 1-2 tbsp. minced dried onion (or substitute with 1 small onion diced finely)
  • 3-4 cloves of fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 tsp. dried basil
  • ¾ tsp. each salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or alternatively use a broiler pan and coat with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl beat together eggs and milk.
  4. In a large bowl combine all ingredients including egg & milk mixture.
  5. Use hands to mix ingredients just until they come together. Overworking the meat will make your meatballs tough.
  6. Form into desired sized meatballs and bake until dark brown (approximately 30 minutes for golf ball sized meatballs, 35 minutes for jumbo meatballs or 20-25 for mini meatballs. Test for doneness prior to removing entire pan from the oven.)
  7. Serve & enjoy or cool completely and flash freeze on cookie sheets, package in airtight containers or freezer bags and store for future meals.
