So Tuesday night, I was browsing through Giada's cookbook, Everyday Pasta, saw a recipe for turkey meatballs and kind of went from from there. Actually, the way I made mine didn't even involve turkey...but they were AH-MAZING!!!
Take that Giada!!!
Totally kidding :) Love her!!
I served them with mostacciolli, spinach and goat cheese salad and Italian herb, parmesan bread.
HELLO!? Can you say DELISH???
I've been obsessed with goat cheese ever since I made the Steph's Special...
Anyways...here it goes!
Meatballs Ala Steph
1lb hot ground Italian sausage
1lb ground beef
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon each, salt/pepper
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a small pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and cook onions and garlic until tender.
Mix all ingredients, by hand, in a large bowl until everything is blended together.
I used disposable rubber gloves. GREAT to have on hand under the kitchen sink...for times just like this!
Roll in balls and place on a greased, foil lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
Makes 16 large meatballs.
Turned my head and oops.... an egg rolled off the counter!
PS-These meatballs would make an AH-MAZING meatball sub.
Well, I guess I will sign off for now...hope everyone has a delicious day!
