These Baked Garlic Dijon Meatballs are the perfect protein source for meal prepping. Serve them with rice, pasta or on a salad!
To spice up my meals and keep it interesting in the kitchen, I’ve been experimenting! During a visit to a small local grocer, I spotted some packaged lean ground beef from Two Rivers. This company partners with small farms that raise animals ethically, without hormones, antibiotics or chemical feed additives.
Since I rarely purchase and cook with red meat, I figured I would mix it up and give this company.
Low and behold, this Baked Garlic Dijon Meatball recipe was created and turned out to be such a winner! I added in some cooked lentils to help the meat go further, while including a plant-based source of protein and fibre.
This recipe is pretty straightforward and can also be altered, depending on your preferences. All you need is:
Once you mix together all of the ingredients, you can use a spoon, a cookie scoop or your hands to mold the meatballs. I have baked them in the oven as well as the air fryer, and both work well! I recommend baking them for 15-20 minutes on 375°F or until they are cooked through.
There are so many ways you can serve these Garlic Dijon Meatballs. Serve them with rice with a drizzle of watered down tzatziki (as pictured). You can also serve them in lettuce or tortilla wraps with your choice of toppings. Alternatively, you may want to add them to a bowl of pasta and top with sauce and parmesan cheese.
Regardless of how you serve them, they are sure to be an excellent source of protein for your next dinner!
