It is hard to beat a sheet pan dinner. These Greek Meatball Bowls are the perfect dish if you love roasted vegetables, easy protein and big flavour. You start by peeling and cubing the sweet potato. While the sweet potato roasts, you can cut up your other vegetables and marinate them in a balsamic and soy sauce blend. Then make easy Greek Meatballs. Once the sweet potatoes have roasted for 20 minutes you literally dump the marinated vegetables on top of them and then place the meatballs on top of everything and cook for another 20 minutes. It's a really simple meal that I am sure you and your loved ones will enjoy year-round.

How to Make Easily Meatballs:
I find the quickest and easiest way to make a bunch of meatballs is to use a cookie scoop. I use a medium cookie scoop for these meatballs. This equals about 3 tablespoons of meat per ball. When you use a cookie scoop you can quickly divide the meat into individual balls and then, once that is done, you can roll them with your hands to create a smooth uniform ball.
