I absolutely love meatballs. There is just something about EASY food that tastes great and is simple to prepare. I also usually prefer the oven over the stove because I don’t have to stand around watching it and flipping etc. It makes my life easier and I decided that heating up my apartment for a few minutes is worth it. Want to be a kitchen ninja? Every time you use the oven try and cook at least two different things at once in order to maximize your time and limit turning your oven on. This is great to do in the summer months when the LAST thing you want to do is make your kitchen feel even hotter.
On to the main attraction! These meatballs are bursting with flavor and utilize fresh basil—which is quickly becoming my new favorite herb. I want to put basil on everything! So follow along to make this yummy protein which can easily be frozen and thawed for quick protein to add to any meal!
First, gather your ingredients…
Then combine everything together in a big bowl…
