These baked meatballs are perfect for weeknight dinners. They are very easy to make and are ready in less than 30 minutes. They are definitely spicy, so if you’re not a fan of spicy foods, use just 1/8 teaspoon cayenne.

Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce (or a Paleo alternative)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, use your hands to mix together the meatball ingredients. With wet hands, form the mixture into 20 (1.5-inch, 1oz) meatballs. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet, not touching each other. Bake 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the sauce ingredients. 5 minutes before meatballs should be done, heat the sauce gently over medium-low heat.
  4. When meatballs are done, use tongs to transfer them to the sauce. Gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
