Baked Beef Meatballs

Baked Beef Meatballs

Happy Monday! I spent all of yesterday cooking and meal prepping for the week ahead. Since I've been out of town so much, I haven't been meal prepping and as a result, have been eating out a lot more than I usually do. It's taken a toll on my overall health as well as my wallet...

Since I'm heading to Charleston this weekend for a wedding, I wanted to make sure I had all my lunches covered for the week, along with a few dinners. I roasted a ton of butternut squash, beets and sweet potatoes, and made carrot fries along with these homemade meatballs.

Meatballs are one of the easiest things to meal prep because they go a long way and are so versatile. I usually prefer turkey meatballs (these pesto and these ones) are my favorites, but I was craving beef meatballs. Last year, Rob made the best beef and pork meatballs that used quinoa flour, but we ran out of quinoa flour so I made a few tweaks to his recipe using gluten free breadcrumbs I found at Whole Foods! The recipe doesn't include any sauce, but I ended up tossing mine in this paleo peach BBQ sauce which was incredible!

Prep Time: 8 minutes      Cook Time: 30 minutes

Servings: Makes 12 meatballs

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of grass-fed ground beef
  • 1/3 cup of gluten-free panko breadcrumbs (I use Ian's Natural Foods)
  • 1 large egg
  • salt & pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add ground beef, breadcrumbs, egg, salt & pepper.
  3. Mix everything together and form meatballs the size of a golf ball.
  4. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet with parchment paper and cook for 30 minutes.

Enjoy!
