  • Serve over cauliflower rice or rice.

Notes

Four ways to keep your meatballs round!

  • Refrigerate – after rolling the meatballs store covered in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to 24 hours.
  • Freeze – Place the meatballs on a cookie covered with parchment paper.  They can be close together but not touching. Place them in the freezer until frozen.  You can cook from frozen or transfer to freezer bags. They are good for up to three months.
  • Bake – Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until cooked through.  This method works fairly well because the meatballs are not turned like on the stove top.
  • Simmer in liquid – drop into simmering broth until they are partially cooked.  When they float remove them to paper towels and then brown in a skillet or in the oven.
