Preheat the oven to low-broil and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix to combine, but avoid over-mixing. Once combined, portion into golf ball-sized meatballs and place onto baking sheet. Transfer to oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until they being to turn golden brown.
