One of my favorite items to meal prep on Sunday’s are meatballs. The reason why I love making meatballs is because you can add them to a variety of dishes, which makes leftovers exciting and not boring. I think meal prep sometimes gets a bad rap because people think they have to eat the same thing everyday. I am here to tell you that it is NOT TRUE.

For example, I prepped these pork meatballs for the week in which I will create a variety of meals:

  • Meatballs with zoodles and tomato sauce
  • Meatball sub sandwiches with tomato sauce
  • Meatball salad with loaded vegetables
  • Meatballs with cauliflower mash and broccoli

For these meatballs I like to saute my jalapeno, onions, garlic, cilantro with some avocado oil first to get the nice caramelized flavor, but this step is optional. Then add you ground pork to a bowl, add seasoning, fresh thyme, and your cooled sauteed vegetables. Mix with your hands, form into balls, add to a heated cast iron skillet with some ghee, and cook a couple minutes each side. Carefully transfer to oven and bake 350 for 15-20 minutes.
