  • Blend garlic powder, onion powder, seasoned salt, rosemary, thyme, and paprika in a blender into a fine powder; pour over ground beef in a large bowl. Knead seasoning mixture into the beef. Roll beef into balls and arrange into a glass baking dish.

  • Bake meatballs in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Pour marinara sauce over the meatballs and continue baking until hot and grey in the center, about 25 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Nice, easy recipe. I added 1/4 C grated parmesan cheese and one egg to the meat mixture. I formed meatballs with an 1/8 C measuring scoop and ended up with 20 meatballs. I skipped the blender step- really unnecessary. Read More

A bit on the bland side. The second time I made them, I added 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 of a minced onion and omitted the herbs called for and added in basil and oregano. I also added an egg. Yep, it's a bit distanced from the original recipe but these taste Italian and delicious. Read More

We added about 1/3 cup of milk but still thought these were a little dry. I will try adding an egg next time. I'll also reduce the Rosemary next time as I found it a little overpowering. Read More

I added breadcrumbs parmesan cheese and one egg like suggested. So can't really say I stuck with the recipe. The Rosemary and Thyme were too overpowering in my opinion. Probably won't make this one again. If I do it would be with much less rosemary and thyme. Read More
