  2. I don’t like lamb, will this work with other meats? Absolutely! you can use ground chicken, turkey, beef or bison. Just check the cooking times as they will vary.
  3. How do I get the meatballs crispy? about hallf way through on the cooking time, take the meatballs out of the oven drain any excess fat and flip the meatballs.
  4. How long should I cook the meatballs? It all depends on the type of meat you’re using, but want to make sure the center gets to the recommended internal temperature.
  5. I don’t have a cast iron skillet what else can I use? Any oven safe pan or dish should work! I always like to heat it up on the stove or in the oven first.

  1. Hi! Looking forward to making these. The meatballs look like they have some sort of tomato sauce on them?? If so, do you mind sharing what you put on them? Thanks!

  2. Made this for dinner last night and it was delicious!!! I added capers and artichokes to the bowl as well. Super easy dinner and super yummy!

  3. I’ve made these twice now because they are so delicious! I am a vegetarian so I have substituted ground Turkey for Beyond Meat’s Beyond Beef and they are SUPERB!!
