Italian Meatballs

August 4, 2014

By Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

Don’t have a lot of time to cook? Let’s keep this one simple.

Ingredients / serves 8

1 lb grass fed ground beef (bison and/or lamb works well also)
1 lb turkey sausage
1/2 c onion, finely chopped (if time is critical, you can use dried onion flakes)
1/4 c almond flour
1 egg
1 tblsp italian seasoning

1 tblsp basil
1 tblsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp onion salt (optional)
28 oz. organic tomatoes, crushed (no sugar added – I will use tomatoes purchased at our local farmer’s market and finely chop, for fresh flavor)

Mix all ingredients except tomatoes in a large bowl. Shape into golf ball sized meatballs. Place in crockpot that has been lightly brushed with olive oil or insert a convenient crockpot bag for easy clean up! Pour tomatoes over meatballs. Cook on low for 6 hours (or high for 4).

Serve with a small salad!
