We have been on a meatball kick for a few weeks over here at WLS Afterlife. You may have seen our Cheddar Bacon Ranch Meatballs a few weeks back. We have also done some Air Fryer Italian Meatballs. There is also a Burger Bites recipe using meatballs. They are such an easy bariatric recipe and you can see that they are also easy to mix up using different seasonings and proteins.

We only used 1/2 lb of meat in our recipe, but feel free to double the recipe and share with friends and family or make a larger batch for your meal prep for the week.

Such an easy recipe and you should have most of these ingredients on hand. Don’t forget that you can always change out your protein with chicken, turkey or beef.

If you are coming up short with your daily protein goals, you can mix in some unflavored protein powder when you are mixing up these stuffed meatballs. It won’t change the flavor at all and it will get you closer to your protein goal.
