These are delicious and easy to prepare. They make a great lunch box staple. I have served them with eggs for breakfast, over zoodles and a homemade tomato-style sauce, in salads. There is relly no limit to what you can do with these yummy meatballs. I batch cook a bunch as part of meal prepping, and grab and go from the fridge as I need to. I hope you like them as much as I do!
