Combine the meat, egg, breadcrumbs, cheese, garlic, onion powder, salt and black pepper in a bowl. Stir just until combined, do not over mix.
Use a medium cookie scoop or spoon to scoop the meat. Then form into 1 1/2" balls and place on the pan.
Bake uncovered for 16-20 minutes, or until no longer pink in the middle. Turn halfway through if desired, so the bottoms don't brown.
