Meatballs

I use a higher fat content ground beef. If you use lean ground beef, your meatballs will turn out too dry. For my WW friends, each meatball is 3 SP. This recipe is freezer friendly, up to three months.

How to Make Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess water.
  2. Mix together all ingredients, using only 1/4 cup breadcrumb mixture (reserve the other 1/4 cup for later). Using only your finger tips (don't squeeze the mixture together), combine ingredients in a large bowl, cover and store in refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
  3. Portion the meat mixture into 16 meatballs (about 2 ounces each). Roll them into balls and then roll them in the remaining 1/4 cup breadcrumbs.
  4. Use desired cooking method to cook meatballs. I like to bake mine at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. I use a mini muffin tin to keep them round but you can use any baking dish, just remember to rotate them frequently if you are using a baking dish. Otherwise your meatballs won't come out perfectly round.
