Who doesn’t love delicious balls of savory meat, especially when they are seasoned to Mediterranean perfection? These meatballs are amazing as an appetizer, atop pasta or polenta, or between a baguette as a sandwich. Easily make these gluten free by substituting ground almonds for the panko.
1 Tbsp Mediterranean Rub
4 cloves Garlic, minced
4 Tbsp Cilantro or Parsley
1 Small Yellow Onion, minced
2 tsp Sea Salt (Roasted Garlic or Rosemary)
2 lbs Ground Pork, Beef, or Chicken
1 1/4 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Add the rub, garlic, cilantro, onion, eggs, and salt to a food processor and puree.
In a large bowl, combine the puree and meat. Gently fold in the Panko.
Make into meatballs and place on a lined sheet pan. Bake for 10-15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.
Serve with dip or pesto.
