Parmesan Ranch Meatballs

I haven't made it to the grocery store for awhile, but I fortunately had all the ingredients for these meatballs. It's always nice to find a recipe that doesn't require a trip to the store (even if it is only a 1/2 mile away).

Parmesan Ranch Meatballs

1 lb ground turkey or beef
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 Tbsp dry ranch dressing mix
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well-combined. Form into meatballs and place into an oiled 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Turn meatballs over and broil for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned.

Combine with sauce and serve. Makes about 20 meatballs.

Made these for dinner tonight. They came together so quickly -- ready for the oven in 10mins! We thought they were good... I only had 1/2pkg of Ranch powder... so they weren't as flavorful as they should have been. But I'll def. make these again! Thanks for sharing!
