  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |

Customize It Instructions

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as beef in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until heated through, 15-20 minutes.

  1. 1

    Bake the Broccoli

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Combine broccoli, 2 Tbsp. water, and a pinch of pepper in provided tray. Season with ¼ tsp. salt, if desired. Spread into a single layer. Cover tray with foil. Bake covered in hot oven, 10 minutes. While broccoli bakes, make meatballs.

  2. 2

    Add the Meatballs

    Finely crush crackers. Combine ground beef, crackers, half the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for topping), garlic salt, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Form mixture into six evenly-sized meatballs. Carefully remove tray from oven. Remove foil. Top broccoli with a pinch of salt, if desired, then push to one side. Tray will be hot! Use a utensil. Place meatballs in empty side of tray.

  3. 3

    Bake the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 20-25 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Top broccoli with cheese. Rest, 3 minutes. While meal rests, combine caramelized onion jam, remaining mayonnaise, and a pinch of salt and pepper, if desired, in another mixing bowl. Stir broccoli. Top meatballs with caramelized onion mixture and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
