Meatballs are a wonderful protein-packed snack recipe. In fact, this isn’t the first meatball recipe that I have shared with you… Check out Sagi’s Signature Meatballs which is straight out of the Body Beast’s “Book Of Beast”.
For this recipe, the addition of homemade BBQ sauce takes these meatballs from regular to extraordinary. You could actually use/re-use the BBQ sauce for either recipe!
Enjoy as a power snack or throw a couple on a pile of greens for a light meal.
