DIRECTIONS

  • You will also need: thin latex gloves (optional).
  • Preheat oven to 375, spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • Combine meat, shallots, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, nutmeg, egg, bread crumbs, milk and parmesan in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • I wear thin latex gloves because I can really mix the ingredients and shape the meatballs without getting it under my fingernails.
  • Scoop up ¼ cup sized portions and shape into 1/2 inch balls.
  • Place meatballs, spaced apart on baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until browned and cooked through (160 degrees in centers).
  • Do not overcook.
  • Add to pasta sauce or sweet and sour sauce or brown gravy.
  • Very delicious.
