"Meaty" Paleo Meatballs

Meatballs -AND I'm not talking about the movie, I'm talking about the tasty little ball of meat.
What I love about meatballs is how versatile they are. You can add them to spaghetti sauce, or a white sauce. You can smother them with BBQ sauce, or even eat them on top of a salad. 
 Because they are so multipurpose, I always keep a bag of meatballs in my freezer ready to go.
First, I cook up a big batch and let them cool completely on my counter.
 Then I flash freeze them. Once they're mostly frozen, I place them in a freezer bag in the freezer.
When I need a quick meal, I take however many I need out and warm them up for a few minutes in the microwave or add them straight to a sauce I'm have heating up on the stove. 
 "Meaty" Paleo Meatballs
Makes about 5 dozen

3 lbs ground beef 
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 heaping tablespoon dried parsely
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl.  Shape into 1 inch meatballs.  Place meatballs on baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
Be careful not to overcook or the meatballs will be dry if you reheat them.
