You can make crumb free meatballs, and they will still taste delicious!

Making a hot, fresh batch of meatballs is a Sunday tradition, at least in my house. Whenever I am meal prepping on a Sunday I always include a batch of lean meatballs. As I’ve posted before, meatballs are a great high protein food whether you eat them hot or cold.
