  • Summary

    Instructions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8x8 glass baking dish with some oil (olive, coconut, etc.) Place all ingredients for the meatballs into a bowl and use your hands to mix the mixture together. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out each meatballs and form into balls. This should make about 18 small meatballs. Place each meatball into the greased baking dish, side by side. It's ok if they are touching. Put in oven to bake for 20-25 minutes. While the meatballs cook, create the dipping sauce by placing everything for the sauce, except for the mayo, into a food processor. Puree until smooth. Once smooth, add the mayo and puree once more until well combined. Dip meatballs into the sauce. Yay meatballs!
