These spheres of meaty joy are super easy to make and baking them in the oven frees you up to do the rest of your food prep or other tasks. Try varying the type of ground meat or go with what’s available – I made them with lean ground pork because it was on sale. You could serve these with tomato sauce and spaghetti squash, homemade Paleo ketchup or just as a post-workout protein source (if the % of fat is pretty low). I made a double batch (recipe below) which yielded 24 meatballs, and these freeze well after being cooked.
