Preheat your oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with foil, and lightly spray foil with nonstick cooking spray.

Place ground beef, dip and egg in medium bowl. Finely grate garlic into bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Gently combine ingredients with clean hands until mixture is uniform.

Using small cookie scoop, form tablespoon-sized balls of mixture. Roll into balls with your hands and space evenly on baking sheet.
