Oven baked Rosemary Meatballs come out juicy and tender every time! A must have staple in every kitchen.
Preheat oven 400 degrees
In a small skillet heat oil over medium high heat.
Saute onion in oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Add 3 cloves minced garlic to onions, cook for about 3 more minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, pork, egg, bread crumbs, rosemary, parsley, Worcestershire, salt, pepper and onion mixture.
Mix well but do not over mix.
Using an ice cream scoop portion out about 15 meatballs. Roll in the palm of your hands to form round balls.
Place meatballs in greased 3qt. baking dish.
Slice remaining garlic clove and place slices in between meatballs. Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.
Serve with mashed potatoes.
In a medium sized stock pot add cubed potatoes to COLD water. Place on stove and turn heat to high. Once the water starts to boil add about 1 Tablespoon salt to water.
Boil for about 8-10 minutes or until the potatoes are able to be mashed with a fork. Drain and pour into a mixing bowl.
Add rest of ingredients to potatoes. Using an electric hand blender, blend until all lumps are gone.
Adjust the salt and pepper to your taste.
If you are making this in advance, when you reheat just add a bit more milk before microwaving.
If you don't have time to make homemade mashed potatoes then buy the pre-made at the grocery store. Either in the deli section or frozen section.
