Since getting back from Christmas break, we've been slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things. We didn't have very long to do that, though!
I had to bounce right back into work upon arrival, and Dusty started his one-week intensive session the following Monday.
One of the best parts of being back has been recipe searching, and meal planning. And the first week we were back, it was time for meatballs!
I found a great recipe. Given that I had just seen that my sister-in-law had made some homemade meatballs, this recipe came along just at the right time! I was craving a pasta night. :)
These meatballs contain flaxseed, which has high levels of dietary fiber and is great for all-around health!
While some flaxseed recipes are no good, we both really enjoyed these little guys!
I found the original recipe online, at momlogic.com :)
Beefaball a la Parm
1 pound lean ground turkey (we used BEEF!)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbsp. ground flaxseed
2 egg whites
1/2 cup bread crumbs
¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. dried parsley (we used fresh)
½ tsp. dried basil
A pinch of salt1 tbsp. olive or canola oil
1. Mix all ingredients together with your hands.
(Pita Meatball Pizzas!)
-Desired sauce (marinara, yum!)
-Mozarella cheese (shredded)
-Leftover meatballs (chopped up!)
-Fresh ground pepper
Take pita bread, (ours came pre-sliced in halves), and smother with sauce, cheese, veggies, meatballs, cheese, pepper, cheese, and so on and so forth.
Have a pizza-topping-riot.
Put mini pizzas on a baking sheet, and stick in the oven for as long as you want. :)
We threw 'em in there at around 375 or so.
