If you are seeking the most incredible edibles recipes that offer versatility and long-term storage options, then this meatball recipe is an excellent start. Meatballs can easily be made into tacos, thrown into any pasta dish or heated and smothered in cheese on any bread, bun or potatoes for some super comfort food. The best part is that if you find that your dish ends up a little too potent for your liking you can store them, and take out the occasional few balls to “garnish” a dish, as they can last in the freezer for up to 3 months in a sealed container.


  • 1 lb. of ground beef
  • 1 cup of BBQ sauce (any flavor)
  • ¼ cup of green peppers
  • 1 cooking onion (diced)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon of cannabis oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup of parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup of instant oatmeal (plain)
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of kosher salt


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Spatula
  • Storage container


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and combine until they reach a thick moldable consistency that doesn’t stick to your hands.

  2. Shape around 2 tablespoons of the hamburger mixture into 1-inch spheres and place them onto a cookie sheet evenly spaced out to bake.

  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F and once it finishes, bake the meatballs for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  4. Now remove the tray from the oven and use a spatula to gently unstick any that might be holding on, as they will need complete movement to get entirely coated in sauce, and to avoid scalding.

  5. Slowly pour a hearty dose of your favorite BBQ sauce over the top of the meatballs and use the spatula to stir everything together until they all have a nice even coating.

  • Toss the sauce hamburger balls back into the oven for an additional 10 minutes.

  • Serve immediately while steaming hot or wait until the batch cools before placing them into a freezer-safe container for storage. Since this meatball recipe has few preservatives, it will last up to 3 days in the fridge, but much longer when frozen.

  • How to make edibles using your own meatball recipe

    There are several different ways that you can use an old family recipe and make it into delicious marijuana edibles. Though it would be nearly impossible to name them all, here are some fast, easy solution for those who do not want to sacrifice a familiar flavor for a new boost in potential benefits.

    1. Cannabis oil
    As long as your meatballs recipe makes around the same number of portions per batch, then the measurement should work out to around the same as in the one mentioned above, just be sure to add the cannabis concentrate slowly to avoid a runny hamburger soup that cannot be shaped.

    2. Cannabutter
    Cannabutter can work just as well as cannabis oil, with the main difference being that cannabutter is a solid which makes it challenging to evenly incorporate, but there is a solution. Simply heat up your cannabutter and add 1 tablespoon of it for every pound of beef.

    3. Cannabis cheese
    If you don’t have either of those products on hand, or you are seeking another twist that will help to conceal the taste, then you might want to check out our marijuana-infused cheese recipe. Sprinkle a small amount onto the hot morsels fresh out of the oven, or heat some up on a hot sandwich for an extra special treat.
