In a small sauté pan over medium-high heat, heat oil and sauté onions for 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes more. Let cool slightly.
In a medium bowl, combine onions and garlic with ground beef, parsley, bread crumbs, egg, salt, and pepper. Form into meatballs 1/2 - inch in diameter. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
