I haven’t made meatballs in a long time! This was an older recipe I refined and made even better by changing the chicken sausage to ground lamb.
- 1lb ground beef
- 1lb ground lamb
- one whole red onion, pulsed in food processor
- 4 cloves garlic
- 3-4 cups loosely packed baby kale (big bag from Costco) or 1 bunch kale, tough stems removed and chopped finely in a food processor
- 1 -2 cups loosely packed basil – tossed in food processor – pulsed
- salt and pepper
- Fresh ground black pepper sprinkled on top before putting in oven
Preheat oven to 375, mix all ingredients together by hand and form into meatballs a little larger than golf balls. Place on cookie sheet bake for 25 minutes, then check. I cooked two cookie sheet-fulls for about 30 minutes, but my oven doesn’t run hot so check at 25. These are so good!!
