Carrot Meatballs

Recipe by hazilsara_74
READY IN: 35mins


  • 1
    lb hamburger, ground lamb, turkey or chicken, or any combination there-of
  • 1 12
    cups grated carrots (peeling is optional)
  • 1
    medium onion, minced or grated
  • 1
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 1
    teaspoon garlic salt
  • 14
    teaspoon basil (I prefer fresh buds from my live-plant!)
  • 18
    teaspoon pepper


  • Prepare all ingrediatns as listed above and mix well. I prefer using my stand-mixer with the open paddle-blade.
  • Form into 1/8 cup meatballs and place in a baking pan, preferably a broiler pan, especially if using a higher-fat content meat. (I use an 1/8 cup measuring spoon and pack the meat into it on the side of the bowl, then use another spoon to pull it out and form the balls a little better on the pan--quicker than trying to do it by hand and less messy!).
  • Bake at 350* for 15-20 minutes. (The cook book suggested frying them, and serving with a brown gravy, but baking is healthier, and the gravy only covers the great flavor!).
