Hiding Veggies (Once Again)

I like when I can disguise veggies in everyday favorites (and trick the boys into eating it...and enjoying it). I made these tasty morsels with mashed potatoes and steamed corn.  BAP ate his in a hurry.  SSP just kinda picked at it; he mostly just ate the corn and taters.

Meatball Muffins
adapted from:

1/2 pound ground beef
1 1/4 pound Italian sausage
1/4 cup bell pepper, diced small
8 baby carrots, diced small
2 cups fresh spinach (or 10oz frozen)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1 t Italian seasoning
1/4 t garlic powder
1/8 t onion powder

In a saucepan add some oil.  Quickly saute pepper, carrots, spinach, garlic and onion (until just fragrant). Remove from heat; cool slightly.  In a large bowl combine meats, spices and sauteed veggies.  Mix well until all incorporated. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Using greased 1/3 cup scoop meat mixture on to the sheet. Bake at 350 for 25-30minutes until meat is all the way cooked. (NOTE: I piped some of the hot mashed potatoes on top of the meatballs, as 'frosting,' for the last 7minutes of baking....just to lightly brown.)
