Iron-rich Meatballs

Category: Main Dish, Beef

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach
  • 1/2 c. rolled oats
  • 1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbs. worcestershire sause
  • 1 egg
  • olive oil


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until soft. Add spinach, reduce heat to medium, and cook until thawed and most liquid has evaporated. Place the onion-spinach mixture in a colander and press with a spatula or wooden spoon to remove remaining liquid.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, spinach mixture, oats, parmesan cheese, worcestershire sauce and egg. Mix well to combine. Using moistened hands, roll into balls and place on a greased baking pan.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or so (depending on how big your meatballs are).

Let them cool and freeze in Ziploc bags. At mealtime, grab a couple meatballs out of the freezer, microwave on a plate for 45 seconds and you're ready to go!
