Albondiguitas (Spanish Meatballs)

Makes about 40

1 lb. ground beef
1 cup fine bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 Tbs. olive oil dash of freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. chopped oregano

Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Shape into 1-inch balls, and place them in an oven-safe baking dish. Roast the meatballs in a preheated 375-degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until they are cooked through. Serve warm with toothpicks.
