Meatballs? Made of tuna? Oh yes. I did. And they’re delicious! But there’s more! They’re also baked and they contain all the delicious caprese flavors that you crave during the warmer months including julienned sundried tomatoes, diced mozarella cheese and basil. These Baked Caprese Tuna Meatballs are perfect atop a salad, in a sandwich or nestled in a bed of pasta.
This is a pat myself on the back kind of moment. I’ve been eating really well the past few months and nearly every lunch I’ve enjoyed has been a salad. As in, I crave vegetables like I never have before. As long as the baby allows me to throw everything together, I’m enjoying a salad at some point during the middle of the day. My favorite mix? Baby spring greens, hard boiled eggs, broccoli slaw, cucumbers and radishes with a homemade balsamic dressing. On occasion, the eggs are swapped for chicken breast but now I’ve got a game changer protein to add to the rotation with my Baked Caprese Tuna Meatballs.

These Baked Caprese Tuna Meatballs are amazing straight out of the oven when the diced mozzarella cheese is at it’s ooey, gooey, meltiest. But not to fear!

They’d even make for a memorable appetizer shared with friends. If you’re into that sort of thing.
