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?

  • Always get family pictures done. Even when you are in the season of life where your toddler won’t cooperate without being swung or eating a cake pop. Even when you have to wear a poncho because you are self conscious of your postpartum mom bod. Even when your baby is still in the stage where most of his facial expressions look like he needs to poop. Always get family pictures done because this is the season of life that goes by way too fast. 💕

  • This little girl challenges me to my core every single day. Her strong-willed attitude is both something I love about her but it also causes a lot of stress. But through it all, she is by far the sweetest, kindest, and most compassionate little kid I know and I couldn’t ask for more. 📷: @celticgrayphotography
  • T W O Months 💙 I can’t believe it’s been over two months with this big guy! His colic seems to be coming to an end and his reflux is under control. He’s rolled over way too many times, smiles and coos all the time and pretty much just steals my heart daily with all his cuddles. He weighed in at 16lbs 5.5 oz and 25in long 😱 His pediatrician literally told me she’s never seen weight gain like that from month 1 to 2 so it’s been confirmed...Beau is in fact a milk monster and I am in fact a 🐮🐄 #twomonthsold #rainbowbaby #beaumontgomeryg
  • Grateful. Thankful. And Blessed. Those words just don’t seem like enough for what I feel when I see this sweet family of mine. No doubt that this is God’s work. 
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 🦃 What are YOU thankful for? 💕💙
