  • 1/2 medium white onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2-3 cloves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. prepare a baking sheet by lining with foil and spraying with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Heat a small amount of oil in a small skillet and cook onions until translucent. Add garlic and cook for about a minute, until fragrant. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Once onions have cooled slightly, combine with sausage, egg, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese in a large bowl. Use your hands for best results and so you don't over-mix the meat, which makes it tough.
  • Divide the meat mixture into 24 equal sized meatballs and place on the foil lined baking sheet, at least an inch apart.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 18-20, or until no longer pink.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta and sauce.
