Sausage meatballs you'll crave from now on

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: Sausage meatballs

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!
