Italian sausage meatballs

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef (or ½ extra lean ground turkey and ½ extra lean ground beef)
  • 500 gm sweet or hot Italian sausage
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped flat leaf parsley (or dried parsley)
  • ¼ small Spanish onion, roughly chopped (or blended in food processor)
  • ¼ red onion, roughly chopped (or blended in food processor)
  • 1 zucchini (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Coarse grind black pepper
  • extra virgin organic coconut oil

Directions:

  • Remove the Italian sausage from its casing. Mix all of the ingredients, (except for coconut oil), together until well combined. Roll the meatballs into the desired size.
  • To cook, heat coconut oil in a sauté pan over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs. Fry 5-7 minutes, until bottom is browned.
  • Turn meatballs to opposite side and fry until that side is nicely browned, another 5-7 minutes. Cut one open to determine if it is fully cooked on the inside. If not quite done, turn heat to low and cover pan for a few more minutes or put meatballs in a warm oven while you fry another batch.
  • *Option, add fresh herbs, (rosemary, thyme, oregano, etc.) to the above mixture.
  • You can also omit the turkey sausage and only use ground meat.
