Amazeballs

These are delicious, nutritious, and a staple in both of our kitchens. If you used our grocery list you already have the ingredients for these. Even the kiddos and hubbies like them. Would you expect less from Amazeballs.

Also, I would be remiss to not credit the amazing Sarah Fargaso at Everyday Paleo. These Amazeballs are really just a skinnier version of her Marvelous Meatballs.

Here is what you need for the balls:

1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey

1 lb. pork or chicken sausage (please use some pork sausage as some fattiness is necessary), remove casings

2 stalks of chopped celery

2 chopped carrots (or a handful of chopped baby carrots)

1/2 white or yellow onion diced

Any Italian Seasoning You Like (oregano and garlic powder work great, 21 Seasoning Salute at Trader Joes is yummy too)

Little Bit of Honey

3 Eggs

1/2 c. Almond Meal

For the special sauce:

2 16 oz can of fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained

2 cans of tomato paste

A large handful of torn fresh basil

12 Garlic Cloves chopped

Salt and Pepper to Taste

Mix together all ingredients for the Amazeballs. Form into balls the size of a hacky sack. Line the bottom of a roasting pan or dutch oven with one layer. If needed you can add some on top too.

Mix together all ingredients for sauce and just slather them on your balls.

Bake at 250 for 3-4 hours or 350 for 1 hour.

And boom you’ve got yourself some Amazeballs. Perfect with some broiled asparagus or a dinner salad. Try to keep your serving size to one or two balls. They also make spectacular leftovers.
