This is one of those quick, comforting, homemade suppers that should be taken to the sofa with a glass of red wine. I’m going to try this with ground turkey (skipping cheese and using water instead of milk) and hopefully it works out well! This is a variation of the ever-popular spaghetti bolognese and is sure to become just as well-loved. Just made this recipe as per the instructions, and it turned out wonderfully (actually I doubled the recipe and cooked the meatballs in sauce in two batches).
A pot of bubbling sauce may be the classic meatball vehicle, but these feta-fied skewers are a wiser choice for entertaining. Pour in 2 cups of hot milk and stir into the meat mixture, making sure to scrape any brown bits off the bottom of your pan. Add the egg and almond flour mix (plus parsley if adding) and gently mix with your hands until the mixture binds and is evenly distributed.
P.S. Please share this delicious recipe with your friends and I welcome your comments below. I have been looking for a meatball that would hold its shape in my slow cooker since the rest of them just crumble and I am left with meat sauce. Deb- in the spirit of washing less pans/dishes: I made the sauce and meatballs in a braising pan on stove top, then added the mozzarella and breadcrumbs and put the whole thing under the broiler.
Stir in evaporated milk and half-and-half; heat through, uncovered, about 10 minutes. I can picture it as a meatball sub as well (we don’t do a lot of bread, but a little isn’t good to kill us). I was glad I had a 2 1/2 pound package of meatball mix” because I adjusted the recipe accordingly and froze half the meatballs uncooked for next time.
The high quality grass fed ground beef proved to work out perfectly in my slow cooker meatball recipe! In a medium sized bowl combine ground beef, panko, parsley, allspice, nutmeg, onion, garlic powder, pepper, salt and egg. Well, we our search is up because Chef Lisa has mastered the meatball with this recipe, a combination of fresh herbs, Parmesan cheese and garlic, topped with a simply sweet and delicious homemade marinara sauce.
