Cheesy Meatballs


1 pound extra lean ground beef

¼ tsp. garlic salt

ground red pepper

¼ cup finely chopped onion

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese



Mix ground beef, onions, garlic salt, and red pepper. Form into balls and brown on all sides until no longer pink in the middle. Serve on a plate with both kinds of shredded cheese sprinkled on top.

Our Healthy Hints: Use extra lean ground beef with no more than 7% fat (93% lean).

Bariatric Bites: You can create your own portions with these meatballs. Try making them the size of a golf ball to help you measure your portions. A golf ball is about 2 tablespoons in volume.
