*That would be a reference to Small Town Security, one of the greatest reality television shows of our time. It has tragically been cancelled by AMC and if you haven’t ever seen an episode, I send you my condolences, because it was truly amazing. I am Facebook friends with Dennis Starr, one of the show’s characters, a relationship that is pretty much the pinnacle of my social media existence.
Anyway, I made some delicious, healthy meatballs last night and I will now share the recipe, which I concocted on my own. Proud day. I eyeballed all of the amounts; you can’t really screw this up.
- ½ lb ground meat (I used grass fed organic beef because ground meat is super effing shady)
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- Chunk of minced onion
- Couple handfuls chopped spinach (you could use kale or whatever)
- An ounce or two of feta
- An egg
- 1-2 TBSP olive oil
- 1-2 TBSP Italian seasoning
- Salt, pepper
This formed about six 1.5 inch-ish balls, which I then baked at 400 for about 25 minutes on a foil lined pan that I sprayed with TJ’s finest coconut oil spray.
We ate them atop spaghetti squash with marinara. Salad with ranch dressing (it was organic ranch, to be fair) on the side lest this meal become TOO healthy.
I took no meatball photos but will leave you with a photo of another ball of sorts: my preggo belly.
