  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix eggs, bread crumbs, walnuts, Cheddar cheese, onions, cottage cheese, oil, garlic, basil, and salt together in a bowl with your hands until thoroughly blended. The batter will be very stiff.
  3. Chill mixture in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes, turn meatballs, and continue to bake for another 8 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • The key to this recipe is to finely chop (or food process) walnuts, onions, and bread crumbs so that there are no large chunks.
  • You can form the mixture into 40 2-inch meatballs instead.
