The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have


Simple meatball seasonings make these meatballs extra tasty. They're full of spice and sautéed to perfection. I usually serve mine with spaghetti, but I've also served them with BBQ sauce and rice on the side.

Prep Time:

Total Time:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • ¾ cup crushed seasoned croutons

  • ¼ cup chopped sweet onion

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mix ground beef, croutons, sweet onion, egg, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, red pepper flakes, and Cajun seasoning in a large bowl until well combined. Form mixture into meatballs by hand.

  2. Melt butter in olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place meatballs in the hot skillet. Cook, turning constantly, until desired doneness is reached, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C) for well done.
