Happy new year everyone.

I have been thinking about making a bunch of meatballs lately. They are so multipurpose and can be used for so many meals: smoked, cheesy, pasta, etc.

The wife helped do some garlic processing, cooked the first meatball meal trial run, and of course helped with the cleanup.

It took a good couple of hours all said and done and they did turn out quite delicious.

Very mild, and not too spicy, just right for a plate of pasta.

Size is bigger that a golf ball, but smaller than a baseball. - I did not want to spend all night rolling meatballs, and we like them big.

Ingredients:

8lbs Pork butt

10lbs Ground elk

9 Eggs

½ cup Olive oil

½ cup Worcestershire sauce

1 cup grated parmesan

2 TBS Salt

2 TBS Black Pepper

2 TBS Onion powder

3 TBS Oregano

12 Garlic cloves

Bread crumbs

We froze the extras and will vac pac them. We are ready for a couple of dinners in the new year.

Thanks for looking.

The trial run balls were golf ball size.

Thanks Al, the wife loved them as well. 


We got them all packed up today, they really pack and seal better after a night in the freezer.
