Description

The Baked Pork Meatballs are a great option for weeknights. Sugar-free, grain-free, egg-free, and perfect for paleo, keto, or Whole30 diets.


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and chopped 
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, bell pepper, onion, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  3. Use your hands to combine the mixture and form 15 meatballs. Lay them at least 1-inch apart on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Let the meatballs cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

To freeze the leftovers, let the meatballs cool completely. Place them in a zip-top bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Let the meatballs defrost in the refrigerator before reheating them on the stovetop or in the microwave.
