Step 3: To the bowl with the dry ingredients, add the ground beef along with the ground pork, egg, olive oil, and garlic. Mix or knead the meat using your hands or spatula until completely combined with the dry ingredients.
Step 4: Scoop out the meat mixture using a 1 tsp cookie scoop and shape it with your hands, gently pressing the meat as you roll it into a ball for best results. Pinch any seams in the meatball closed, then roll it between your hands until the meatball is smooth.
Step 5: On the prepared baking sheet, place the meatballs, making sure they are not touching.
Step 6: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the meatballs are completely cooked.
Step 7: Remove from the oven when done and serve the meatballs right away. Enjoy!
