  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup Ritz crackers crushed
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup Italian parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking with parchment paper and set aside. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well using a heavy spoon or your hands.
  • Form golf-ball-sized balls out of the meat mixture and place 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Serve as a main dish or atop a plate of spaghetti!


  • Replace the ground beef with turkey for a slimmed down recipe.
  • To make these gluten free, either omit the crackers entirely or replace them with a GF variety.
  • Chop the onions finely to help avoid the meatballs falling apart.
