Baked Beef Meatballs


  • Ground Beef 93/7 lean – 1.08 lb (that’s what I had)
  • Red Onions very finely chopped – 53 g
  • Chopped Frozen Spinach – 5 oz
  • Coconut Oil – 7g (1/2 TB)
  • Garlic – 2 cloves
  • Cheddar Cheese Shredded – 2 TB
  • Egg Large – 1
  • Taco seasoning – to taste
  • Salt – to taste (I used a pinch)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degree F
  • In a pan, heat oil and sauté together – garlic, onion and spinach – till mixed well and water is evaporated.
  • Make sure before mixing everything that the ingredients are in room temperature.
  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together till they are well amalgamated. Try not to mash too much.
  • I made 21 – 1 oz meatballs.
  • Spray a baking sheet, place meatballs equidistant and bake them covered with aluminium foil (I like to cook covered as it prevents drying out) for 15-20 minutes. Meatballs should reach a temperature of 160 degrees.


Meatballs came out juicy but, next time I’ll have to use little more seasoning and little more cheese. Let’s hope my kids eat it.


Update: Kids didn’t seem to relish the meatballs. Couple of things to fix next time.

  • Use slightly less spinach
  • Definitely Add more seasoning
  • Bake less than 20 mins. Maybe, 15 mins will be enough.
