PALEO Meatballs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

One Pound Ground Turkey
One Pound Lean Ground Beef
1/4 cup chopped garlic sautéed in olive oil until light golden
1 cup of chopped onions also sautéed briefly in olive oil
1 cup of Almond Meal
1 1/4 cups of diced bell peppers (any color)
1 1/4 cups of shredded carrots
1/2 cup of chopped basil
1/2 cup of chopped oregano
2 eggs

Make your own Sauce by combining:
1 1/2 jars T.J. Marinara Sauce
1/2 jar of the T.J. Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta

In a LARGE Bowl combine First TEN Ingredients from above. Mix and fold repeatedly with your hands until very well blended. Then shape into golf ball size and place on a olive oil greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Remove from the cookie sheet and transport directly into a Crockpot. After each layer of meatballs pour a layer of sauce mixture and repeat until all meatballs are in the pot and covered with the sauce. Cook on Low for 2 to 6 hours.

You can skip the Crockpot and just bake in the oven longer, but the magic happens when the meatballs and sauce cook together sharing flavors in a confined space.

You can also skip the oven by placing the raw meatballs directly into the Crockpot with the sauce and cook on High for 4 to 6 hours, or on Low for over 8 hours. Enjoy =)
