The most delicious meatballs you will ever have--period. My twins are at a picky age right now, they refuse most everything I make them. I was ecstatic when my son ate 4 of these, and my daughter had 3. The only problem was my husband kept wanting to eat them, and I had to keep reminding him we were saving them for the kiddos!
- Yields: 50 mini meatballs
1Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onion for 5-10 minutes, stirring until softened. Add the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Set aside to cool.
2In a food processor, combine onion/garlic mixture, parsley, tomato, vegetable bouillon, salt, and egg. Pulse a few times until all ingredients are combined well and onion and parsley are chopped into very fine pieces.
3In a bowl, mix together the beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, apple and mixture from food processor.
4Form the mixture into approximately 50 mini meatballs.
5Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and sauté meatballs, until browned and cooked inside. Cover pan periodically while cooking the meatballs to make sure meatballs are evenly cooked. Drain on paper towel.
