Easy Oven-Baked Meatballs | stupideasypaleo.com

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.

Ingredients for Easy Oven-Baked Meatballs

  • 2 pounds (1000 grams) ground meat of choice (I used lean pork)
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (or 3 teaspoons dried rosemary)
  • 1 Tablespoon dried sage
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Fat of choice

Directions for Easy Oven-Baked Meatballs

1. Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Line a sheet pan with foil.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, sauté the onion in a spoonful of your fat of choice until softened, about 5 minutes. Let cool.

3. In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, onions and all the spices.

4. Form into ~2″ balls and arrange on sheet pan.

5. Bake for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.

    Def easy and delicious! Used minced dried onion since didn’t have enough fresh, eyeballed the rest of the ingredients listed, also added oregano and basil. Def including this in the rotation on a regular basis for a quick snack to bring to work.

      Hi Jenn! I love your subs / tweaks to the recipe. My favorite part about cooking is taking an idea and customizing it to make it my own :) That’s where all the fun is. Thanks for checking in! That reminds me that I should make these today :)

    I think you meant 2 tsp of salt. I had 1.5# of beef and used 2 teaspoons of salt and that was too much so I hope you didn’t really mean 2 tablespoons for 2#.

      You can defrost in the fridge and then warm them up in a greased skillet, the toaster oven or in a pot of tomato sauce :)

      Probably 4-8 ounces. Servings are completely individual because everyone eats a different amount but I’d imagine 4-8 oz would cover it, and that varies depending on how big you make them.
