  • 1½ lbs ground turkey or grassfed beef
  • ½ medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 tsps dried oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
  • mozzarella goat cheese, sliced into 1'' x 1" squares, ¼" thick
  • organic pizza sauce with no additives or preservatives(Cadia organic pizza sauce is my choice)
Instructions
  1. Set broiler on high.
  2. In a medium size bowl, mix together (with your hands) turkey or beef, onion, oregano, and salt.
  3. Do not over work the meat mixture, or it will become too chewy. Mix just until all ingredients are combined.
  4. Have a medium size casserole dish nearby.
  5. Roll meat mixture into balls the size of quarters or silver dollars.
  6. Place each meat ball into casserole dish.
  7. Once all meatballs are finished rolling, place in broiler.
  8. Broil for 7-9 minutes, until slightly browned on top.
  9. Once tops are browned, remove casserole dish and carefully roll each meat ball over with a fork.
  10. Broil for another 4 minutes.
  11. Remove casserole dish and top each meatball with a 1" square of goat cheese.
  12. Broil for 3 more minutes, just until cheese is slightly melted.
  13. Allow to cool.
  14. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping.
  15. NOTE: Meatballs and pizza sauce are great for packing in a lunchbox!
