BAKED NOT FRIED!
What’s not to love about a delicious meatball? When a client brought these to us for Thanksgiving, after taking one bite I just knew that I had to get the recipe! Each bite was heaven and we kept saying “wow, what is in that!?” We ate them as appetizers with a special gravy that he made that also had some mushrooms in it. Was a really fun dish and definitely wanted to share it with you!
Did you know that mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide nutrients such as selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more? Pretty awesome I know.
We visit our “mushroom guy” at the farmers market every week for the best of the best! Such a great variety of lion’s mane, pepino, shiitake and oyster. I honestly was not a mushroom lover until I meet him!
Expect a unique flavor that the pecans add and not too “mushroomy.”
Honestly, these are just as good as a “normal” meatball but these are much healthier.
- If your texture is “sticky” you can try adding more oats.
- Serve over your favorite pasta or noodles with your favorite marinara sauce! Also great just as an appetizer.
- Crushed red pepper flakes are optional but I say YES for sure if you like some kick.
- If you make big meatballs you’ll get around 15 and for small meatballs around 30.
EAT WELL. STAY FIT. FEEL GREAT.
