  1. Place hamburger into a large bowl and mash using your hands.
  2. Add the garlic powder, italian seasoning, pepper, and egg into the bowl and mix.

  5. Form meatballs to your preferred size.
  6. Fully coat the bottom of your pan with oil or cooking spray and cook the meatballs on medium heat until brown.
