Salisbury Meatballs

Although here in Washington we are still having hot Summer days, the mornings are starting to feel a little more like Fall and it’s getting darker much earlier. This sparked that feeling to start making some more Fall inspired dishes to change things up a bit!

These meatballs are protein packed and can be made with half ground beef half ground turkey or chicken to make even leaner, or make them into chicken or turkey meatballs, they will be delicious any way! Make sure you’re using 93/7 or leaner ground beef to keep fat content down and of course, we always recommend organic, grass-fed beef whenever possible!

Enjoy these by themselves or served over mashed potatoes, veggie noodles or our 2 ingredient cauliflower mashed potatoes!

This recipe was inspired by Skinny Taste w/ our own macro twist and we gotta say, it’s a must try!

Enjoy!
