Easy Meatball Recipe

Tags:     

Since I am on a new journey to restore my health with what seems like an impossible diet I figured I would document it as best I could and share it right here on my piece of the internet. Every Monday I will post a new recipe that I have come up with as several people have asked me to post any recipes I love. I usually find recipes that sound good to me and then tweak them to work for my dietary needs. So, it is truly a trial and error journey.

Last week I made these really great meatballs in hopes of having an easy little snack for the entire week. With this new diet, I had to make sure my meatballs fit the Autoimmune Protocol which is basically a stricter version of the paleo diet. This means that these meatballs have no dairy, grains, eggs or tomatoes. Disclaimer: I do eat eggs at breakfast but avoid them in anything else.

These meatballs held together great without any bread, cheese or egg to bind it but you can of course add them in if your diet allows.

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey

1 lb ground bison

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 ¼ Tbsp of Basil, Oregano, Parsley. I did equal parts of each but break it up however you like.

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400F.

With hands, mix meat and all other ingredients together until well mixed.

Form meat into 1-1/2” meatballs and place on baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake for 10-15 minutes.

Sorry for the low-quality photos, one is a screenshot from a video and the others were after thoughts. I didn’t think to document the process until I was about over but the taste and ease of this recipe should make up for that. I will do better with my planning for photos next week 🙂 I ate them plain and then throughout the week as a protein on my salads.

what do you think?

This gown and hat set and matching lovey is from @themotherbabybond is literally the softest piece of clothing Beau has. The best part is it has magnetic closures; talk about easy 3am diaper changes! Their shop has sooo many options and prints! Go support the sweetest mother/daughter duo 💕
  • While I love precious posed photos, these are the kinds of photos I cherish the most. The ones that capture us just being us. Real life...Teagan wanted nothing to do with pictures that day and of course, Beau, the milk monster wanted to eat but all of that ended up resulting in this moment. I’m so grateful for @celticgrayphotography always being kind and patient with us and capturing the best of us!
  • Oh Beau, you’ve completely stolen our hearts 💙 #gerberphotosearch2018 #beaumontgomeryg
  • One of Teagan’s school pictures. I cannot take this. Yes, I’m crying 😭 she’s so beautiful and growing up right before my very eyes! 😍
  • Currently in the newborn haze. I won’t lie, a lot of days I miss lunch or find myself right here eating lunch on the floor keeping a newborn content while trying to entertain a toddler. Luckily, @ReadyPacFoods makes it super easy for me to eat while on the go and also get a healthy option in with these Bistro Single-Serve Salads. #WePackedYouLunch #sponsored
  • Sometimes I just stare at him and want to cry because I know this season of life is going to go so fast. Stay little my sweet Beau 💙 #beaumontgomeryg
  • I promise she really does love him! Lots of adjustments happening over here but we are all surviving one meltdown at a time 💕💙 #gaskellrascals
  • One week as a family of 4 and nothing has ever felt so right ☺️ #gaskellrascals 📷: @celticgrayphotography
