Meal Prep Series: Meatball Mania

I love a meatball…so much. So does my entire family. The whole family seriously jumps for joy when I make meatballs for dinner. I rarely have time to make a meatball dinner on a Tuesday before soccer practice. I do, however, have time to make a double batch of meatballs on Sunday and either freeze them or leave them in the fridge for the week. The Sunday batch is always prepared with a salad, gluten free noodles or regular noodles for the Fam and zucchini noodles for myself. I find I actually I prefer zucchini noodles to pasta, I spiralize them on the largest noodle cut I have available. I never boil my noodles, but I sauté them with mushrooms, garlic and garlic olive oil.

I always try to use the highest quality ingredients. I love a Grass Fed/Finished Beef. Grass Finished Beef contains Omega 3, antioxidants and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which can lower inflammation in the body and supports the immune system.


2lbs of Grass-Fed/Finished Beef

3 cloves of Galic, crushed

1.5 tbsp Herbs de Provence

1 cup of Gluten Free Panko Crumbs

1 Egg

Salt and Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. 
  • Adjust oven rack to the centre position.

  • Use a tablespoon to measure out individual meatballs.
  • Form each meatball by hand.
  • Sauté the meatballs to brown, 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Place the meatballs on a Parchment Paper lined pan, leave space in between each meatball.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until meatballs are done; they should and internal temperature of 165°F when checked with a meat thermometer.

Meatballs are versatile! They can be enjoyed in a number of ways, with a pasta sauce, in a submarine sandwich, on a bed of mixed greens or with a barbeque sauce and garlic mashed potatoes. These Meatballs are simply delicious, and made from healthy, natural ingredients.

As I said, meatballs are versatile, they can be seasoned virtually anyway, with Indian spices like cumin, turmeric, garam masala and served with a curry sauce. Greek Style with oregano, feta cheese, served with artichokes, Greek salad and a rice pilaf. Your creativity is the limit!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does! Drop me a comment if you give them a Go!
