How to prepare:

Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.In a large bowl, stir together the panko and buttermilk. Let the mixture sit for five minutes. Add in the ground beef and all the other ingredients. Mix until well combined.Form golf-ball sized meatballs and place them about 1/2-inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.Bake the meatballs for 28-32 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from oven and transfer to a platter or plate. If you used a less lean form of ground meat, you may want to drain the meatballs on a layer of paper towels before transferring to a platter or plate.30Cover the meatballs in salsa sauce and put two sliced olives on each meatball for the eyes (they should stick just fine to the sauce).
