Meatloaf Meatballs


As promised, here is my recipe for...


Meatloaf Meatballs
created by Snacking Squirrel

1 cup raw lean ground beef 
(or poultry or vegetable protein)
1/3 cup diced red onion
1 large whole egg
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp chili powder
Dash of salt and pepper


Toss everything into a bowl and blend 
massage together with your hands until mixed


Fresh Gourmet Organic Seasoned Croutons


Note: Breadcrumbs will work too


Roll 2-3 Tbsp of raw meatloaf mixture with your hands, 
forming into balls, and place into a small baking dish 


Recipe yields 6 golf ball sized meatballs


Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit and bake for 45-50 minutes


Tip: For even yummier meatballs, add a dollop 
of tomato sauce on top of each ball before baking


Serve with Mashed Potatoes and Steamed 
Vegetables for a quick, healthy and tasty meal!

These look yummy. I make individual meatloaves in a muffin tin, but your freeform meatballs are so much more fun!

Meatloaf makes me happy, but in ball form it makes me extra happy.

looks so good! I can't have croutons, is there a good gluten free alternative or can I just omit them? Thanks!
