Fresh Herb Meatballs
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- ½ onion, minced
- ½ cup fresh basil, finely minced
- ½ cup fresh parsley, finely minced
- 1 cup spinach, finely minced
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup almond meal
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands to combine. You can use a food processor to reduce the basil, parsley and spinach to a finer mixture before adding it to the ground meat. Season the mixture to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Make small balls the size of a golf ball and place them apart on a baking sheet, then place them in the preheated oven to cook for about 25 minutes, until well cooked.
