These baked oatmeal meatballs are a healthier spin on traditional pan-fried meatballs with bread crumbs. You’ll love how juicy they are!
Traditionally we always make meatballs with bread, soak it in milk and add it to meat balls. Well I want to cut out unhealthy carbs as much as I can, especially if I can’t taste them in my food(because I just love carb food so I want to taste it when I do eat it). I was making meatballs and thinking what if I replace bread with oatmeal, I went for the risk. After I put them in oven I went to see on pinterest if anyone else made those and of course people did. Well great minds do think alike.
Another experiment I was doing here was baking them rather than frying. Well I got to say I am very impressed and will always bake meatballs from now on, cutting on few calories helps. I did worry that they may turn out little dry but they were delicious.
