Goat Cheese Meatballs

  • About 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup flax seed, ground
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Combine the ground beef, flax seed, goat cheese, diced onion, salt, and pepper in a bowl. With clean hands, mix all of the ingredients together until well incorporated. Grease a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Form the meat mixture into balls about the size of a golf ball and place into the pan. Cook for 15-20 minutes, turning the meatballs every once and while to ensure they are cooked through. Serve with your favorite meatball accompaniment! Makes about 12-14 meatballs. 

Goat Cheese Meatballs: Tara Tested, Tara and family approved! Another successful meatball recipe experiment in the books! These meatballs are easy to make and the recipe can be adjusted to your specific flavor preferences. You can try substituting the goat cheese with feta or bleu or any other crumbly cheese that you enjoy. I used flax seed in this recipe instead of breadcrumbs- flax seed is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, and when ground, has a similar consistency to breadcrumbs, you won’t even notice a difference! I served these meatballs up with zoodles (zucchini noodles) and asparagus for a delicious and healthy dinner. Enjoy!
