Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 23-25 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground pork in Steps 2 and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until burger is heated through, 20-22 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Break broccoli into smaller pieces with your hands. Combine broccoli, diced onions, 2 tsp. olive oil, half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for meatballs), and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Bake uncovered in hot oven, 10 minutes.

  2. 2

    Add the Meatballs

    Carefully remove tray from oven and push vegetables to one side. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil. Combine pork, panko, remaining garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl. Form into six evenly-sized meatballs. Place meatballs in empty half of tray.

  3. 3

    Bake the Meal

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until broccoli is tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 23-25 minutes. While meal bakes, place bacon in a microwave-safe bowl and heat, 20 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir in cream cheese, Parmesan, a pinch of salt, and 2 Tbsp. water until smooth. Microwave again until warmed through, 10-20 seconds. Carefully remove tray from oven. Garnish meatballs with bacon-cheese sauce and crispy onions and broccoli with red pepper flakes (to taste). Bon appétit!
