I like to use the leanest ground beef that I can find to avoid the extra grease. If you don’t have lean ground beef, you can always just drain the grease after baking in the oven.

These delicious gumbo meatballs are so simple and can be made ahead of time. Just make the meatballs and freeze them. Then on cooking day, just cook in the slow cooker.

I just usually serve this with a salad.
