A cast with clean ingredients
Our clean, comfortable dish only requires a handful of simple ingredients that you can feel comfortable about, and it only takes 15 minutes to cook.
First, lean ground beef serves as the backbone of this BBQ meatball dish. However, lean minced meat is sufficient! For example, ground turkey would taste amazing too if you’d rather take the poultry route.
Next, our recipe calls for a BBQ sauce of your choice. We know you have tons of brand options to choose from, some of which are healthier than others. Find out about the nutritional information beforehand and avoid sauces with a high sugar content.
If you have a little more time, you can use ours SkinnyMs. Barbecue sauce is 100% clean and 100% delicious. This fabulous tasting sauce is a no-brainer and goes well with any grill dish and will make you feel great!
This recipe also highlights red potatoes. Red potatoes make a satisfying, nutritious starch with an irresistible buttery taste and texture. Packed with vitamins and potassium, these vegetables can help repair body tissues and boost immunity.
Finally, we lightened the dish by using low-fat Colby Jack cheese instead of full-fat cheese.
The cooking process for our BBQ meatballs
This recipe is super easy to follow and really fun! After you’ve whipped the meatballs, divide your baking dish into two sections and place the meatballs on one half. Then prepare your potatoes and place them on the other half, sprinkling cheese on top. Finally, put your creation in the oven for about 25-30 minutes and drizzle the remaining BBQ sauce over the meatballs. Let’s go – your hearty and delicious stew is ready to serve!
Although meatballs often work with spaghetti, they may go even better with potatoes. We also have to admit that the chewy, flavourful meatballs versus the rich, butter-red potatoes make a droolable duo.

One Pan BBQ Meatballs and Fried Potatoes
This simple stew is loaded with the flavors of your favorite kitchen, but it’s far healthier!
Servings: 4th People
- 1 lb 90% lean ground beef or other lean ground beef
- 1/3 Cup Barbecue sauce
- 1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs Seasoned or unseasoned – gluten-free crumbs can be substituted
- 1 lb red potatoes washed and cut into quarters
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 Cup low fat Colby Jack cheese shredded
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray and set it aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, 1/4 cup of the BBQ sauce, and the breadcrumbs. Mix well until the ingredients are mixed very well. Don’t be afraid to put your hands in where it is needed! Roll the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and place in half of the prepared baking dish. You should have 12 meatballs.
Then mix the potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Stir well to coat the potatoes with the oil and place in the second half of the baking dish. Top with the Colby Jack cheese.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the meatballs are cooked through. Take out of the oven and drizzle the rest of the grill over the meatballs (and even the potatoes if you want)! Let cool down a bit before serving.
