Veggie-Beef Balls

This is one of those things that I love to have on hand in the fridge to just grab when I need something. I pack them full of veggies so that I can get a good amount of nutrition in  a compact package quickly. Enjoy!!

Veggie-Beef Balls
2 lb ground beef
5 C Shredded yellow and green Zucchini
4 Tbsp Onion Powder
3 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
2 Tbsp Dried Sweet Basil
1 tsp Salt
2 Eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Grease tray with a little bacon grease and place in preheating oven to get grease hot.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Scoop out balls into desired size using an ice cream scoop. 
 Remove pan from oven and place balls onto greased tray.
The bacon grease will begin to fry them slightly, which will give some good flavor and keep them from sticking. Place full pan into oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and flip, removing any extra fat you may need to at that point.
 Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes or until cooked through. Eat as is, or topped with a tomato sauce.
I also made a quick pesto last night to have over them and spaghetti squash, yumm!!
