Mini Meatballs

Whether you're looking for an appetizer dish for entertaining, or an easy source of weekday protein: these meatballs are it. Besides tasting amazingly addictive, these little guys are packed with nutrient-dense, high-quality beef.


Try these as a bite-size snack on game-day, or serve them with dinner over Tomato Basil Meat Sauce.  If you're prepping to eat healthy during a busy week, try freezing a batch after they're cooked. Then, just pop a few in the microwave to thaw before eating.

I made these last weekend for my family to snack on while we watched football playoffs on Sunday (go 49ers!). The recipe makes about 50 small meatballs, & there were no survivors... I'd say they were a hit ;)


Hope you enjoy 'em too, & please let me know what you think!

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 8 oz gluten free pork sausage
  • 1 cup cashew meal
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 white onion, minced
  • salt & pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to a large bowl, and use a fork (or fingers) to combine.
  3. Let the mixture chill, covered, in the refrigerator for 30 minutes~ if you've got time.
  4. Roll into small balls & place on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.
  5. Bake at 350ºF for 25-30 minutes, or until firm and slightly browned.

P.S.~ I recently got into Instagram! (late on the bandwagon, I know) I've been posting lots of Paleo meal/snack pictures, workout ideas, & other fun things too... go find me, & let's be friends :)

What do you suggest as an alternative to the cashew meal? My son is allergic to cashews. Thanks for your help! Love your recipes!!
