    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Meatballs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 kg ground pork or 1 kg veal
    • 125 g ground pecorino siciliano cheese
    • 1 cup breadcrumbs, soaked 3 minutes in milk and the excess squeezed out
    • 3 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons minced parsley
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • organically grown lemons or orange leaves, rubbed with olive oil

    Optional

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all the ingredients except the leaves, and make many slightly flattened meatballs small enough that you can wrap each in a leaf (use a toothpicks or skewers to keep them rolled).
    2. 2
      Grill the meatballs until done and squeeze with lemon before serving. (The leaves are not edible, so you may wish to wrap the leaves in a manner that will be quick to unwrap.).

      This is a delicious little appetizer! I have a calamondin citrus tree so when I first read the recipe I loved the idea of wrapping the leaves around little meatballs. I was not sure though when reading the recipe if the leaves might be edible after being grilled, well, unfortunately, they are not! The removing of the leaves is a bit tedious, besides, the meatballs needed a dipping sauce, they are a tad dry on it's own. All in all, this was a tasty and unusual treat, thanks for posting! Made for "My 3 Chefs" tag game; June 2012.
