Tip: These meatballs can be portioned out and frozen for a quick weeknight meal or lunch.  Serve over rice, pasta, zucchini noodles or on their own with a hearty salad.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Pour milk into breadcrumbs and let soak until fully absorbed, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook onions until translucent and cooked through but not browned, 3 – 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a large-size mixing bowl. Do not overwork to keep the meatballs light and fluffy.
  5. Use a standard size ice cream scoop to evenly portion out meatball mixture into a large size skillet or frying pan. Use the palms of your hands to roll into balls.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes and remove from oven.
  7. Add tomato sauce to meatballs and gently simmer over low heat for 20 – 30 minutes.
