Oven Baked Beef Meatballs with Oatmeal (katleti)


Hey guys , I just finished replying to all your sweet comments and reviews on here :D Nothing makes me happier then receiving them from you all, it definitely motivates me and keeps me going:) I’m not sure if it notifies you when I reply, If not you can just please check back the next day :)

Now to these yummy meatballs (katleti) I don’t know about you all but I LOVE it when my oven does all the cooking for me, Nothing is easier then prepping it and throwing it into the oven, especially when you are a busy mom :) They are still just as good and juicy baked in the oven and not to mention so much healthier because you are not frying them in loads of oil!

Guys please keep the reviews coming!!!!!!! :)

    This is definitely a healthier version of kotleti, and it’s nice that you incorporated some veggies into these! :) I’ve tried baking kotleti in the oven before and yes they taste just as good as fried!
