Pesto Meatballs are a real crowd pleaser. Pesto goes with just about everything, and putting some into meatballs makes them even more tender and delicious.
Use in recipes or cool and freeze for later use.
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 F and heat a small skillet with olive oil and butter over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove to a large bowl and let cool for 10 minutes.
Beat in pesto, cheese, egg, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper and mix well.
Add beef and mix gently but thoroughly with hands until combined. Form into 1-1/2 inch meatballs. Place on a cookie sheet with sides.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 F.
