The other night I was craving a very specific taste. I wanted sausage, but I wanted it in meatball form. I wanted it to be garlicky. I wanted it to be shiny on the outside, but not greasy. I wanted exactly this:
The Sausage Meatballs You'll Crave From Now On
- 1 lb loose sweet Italian sausage
- 1 clove garlic smashed
- 2 pieces of stale bread crusted removed
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 2 Tbsp fresh parsley minced
- 2 Tbsp fresh basil minced
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan
- Avocado oil (or your fav high temp oil) for the pan
Break apart and soak bread in milk. In a large bowl, mix together sausage, garlic, soaked bread, parsley, basil, egg and Parmesan. Form into 1 inch balls. You should have about 20.
Turn on pan to med high and add enough oil to just coat bottom. Add meatballs and brown about 4-5 minutes on each side turning frequently.
I ate 3 right from the pan. Then I served them over pasta with my friend Katie's awesome fresh tomato sauce and some crusty bread. But I think they would be great in little mini sausage meatball and pepper sammies!
