For the meatballs:

  • Ranch dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, gently mix the meatball ingredients together. Roll the mixture into 1 1/2-inch meatballs and place on baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatballs reaches 165˚F. Remove from oven and let cool for several minutes.
