Middle Eastern-inspired Meatballs

The recipe is very basic, with only five ingredients—three of which can be found on the Online Market!

Prep Time:  5 minutes
Stove Top Time: 10 minutes
Oven Time: 10 to 15 minutes
1 lb Whole Hog Sausage, ground (or ground lamb depending on preferences) 
1 egg 
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
2 cloves of organic garlic, diced finely
1 Tbsp of Garam Masala Spice
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and mix with your hands until fully incorporated. Turn your stove top onto low, add 1 Tbsp of oil or butter to a sauce pan. I used a cast iron skillet. Make meatballs the size of a tablespoon or a little larger.

Once all meatballs are shaped, place them on the sauce pan and brown them on all sides, rotating them frequently.
After the meatballs are browned on all sides, place them onto a baking sheet (or keep them on cast iron skillet, if this is the method you used) and bake them in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until fully cooked. Time will depend on size of meatballs and amount of time spent browning outside.

After spending much of my life as a vegetarian, I recently made the switch to include small amounts of meat into my diet. Purchasing meat from the Friends& Farmers Coop online market is the perfect opportunity to incorporate fresh, local and guiltless meat from farmers whom I know and want to support.
