  • 1 lb grass fed beef
  • 1/2 cup chickpea breadcrumbs

  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp organic yellow mustard

  • In a large bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, worcestershire, mustard and season with salt and pepper. Mix until combined and form into bite size meatballs
  • In a large skillet, heat oil in medium heat and cook meatballs about 6 minutes per side.
  • Add a piece of cheese to the top of each meatball and let melt for 1 minute
  • To a skewer add the meatball, then piece of onion, lettuce and top with tomato slice. Serve displayed on a dish.


  • For vegan or plant-based options, you can opt for plant based cheese or a flax egg. See post for instructions¬†¬†

If you want to go for a plant based or vegan option, I like to use Good Planet Foods Cheese particularity because it is Non-GMO and there are no natural flavors in the ingredient list. YES!
