My Favorite Meatballs
I’m a sucker for a good meatball. Luckily, we have some amazing meat vendors to help with that! Snag some humanely raised veal from Lazy Dog Farms and some Pork from either Lazy Dog, West Wind, or Renaissance Farms!
1lb Ground Veal
1lb Ground Pork
Half a Palm full each: Rosemary, Parsley, Fennel Seeds, Black Pepper, Red Pepper Flakes (optional), then crush
1/2c Bread Crumbs
Garlic- at least 2 cloves but add more if you’re a garlic fiend like me
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl using your hands. Then ball them up to the about the size of your palm. Using your favorite marinara, spoon some sauce into the bottom of a baking dish just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Plop your meatballs in the dish, and into a 350 degree oven for about 25 to 30 min, depending upon the size of your ‘balls, turning occasionally if your heart so desires. In the meantime, heat up some sauce and boil some noodles. Make a salad, toast some La Belle Bakery baguette or ciabatta, and pop the cork on a (second) bottle of Red!
Leftover meatballs? Make a sub sandwich for lunch!
