Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Italian-style shredded cheese blend (or 1 cup shredded mozzarella and 1 cup shredded Parmesan)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 teaspoons dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl and use clean hands to mix.
  3. Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop (size #30 or #40), portion out a meatball. Roll gently between hands to shape, then place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.
  4. Continue portioning out meatballs until all meat mixture has been used.
  5. Bake meatballs at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

To freeze:

  1. Place cooled meatballs into gallon-size ziptop freezer bag or freezer container of your choice. Label and date, and place into freezer.


My local store carries an Italian-style cheese blend, but if your's does not, you can easily substitute 1 cup of shredded mozzarella and 1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese for the 2 cups of Italian-style cheese blend in the recipe.
