Form ground pork mixture into eight evenly-sized meatballs. Place meatballs on two opposite sides of tray.
If using ground beef, ground turkey or Impossible Burger, follow same instructions.
Add the Broccoli
Place half the broccoli in empty half of tray. Top with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Then top with remaining broccoli, then 1 Tbsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Bake the Meal
Bake uncovered in hot oven until broccoli is tender and meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 25-30 minutes.
If using ground beef follow same instructions. If using ground turkey, bake uncovered in hot oven until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 25-30 minutes. If using Impossible Burger, bake uncovered in hot oven until meatballs are heated through, 25-30 minutes.
