Make this: Dad's Meatballs.

A few weeks ago, we stopped by my parents before going out to a Christmas party. My dad was trying out a new meatball recipe and I stole a few to taste test....ever since I've been craving them. I decided to try them out for this new, fun wine club I went to Wednesday night. These meatballs can be served on their own like I did or in a pasta dish like my dad did.

I took the recipe and tried to approximate how much of everything I'd need because the original recipe was per meatball and I wanted to just mix everything together at once.

To make these, you'll need:
2/3rds lb ground chuck
2/3rds lb ground pork
large tub Greek yogurt
garlic, minced
basil, minced
parmesan cheese, grated
bread crumbs
salt, pepper

1) mince your garlic and basil (we used about 8 basil leaves and 5 garlic cloves)

2) put your meat in a large mixing bowl, add in about 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (you may add some later if the consistency isn't right), 1/2 cup bread crumbs (again, add more if you want for consistency), parmesan cheese (about 1/4 cup or more), basil and garlic, and salt/pepper (we also added Cavender's Greek Seasoning). Mix together with hands.

3) create mini-meat balls out of the mixture

4) cook in a skillet with heated olive oil

(It helps if you have a cute helper)

And serve!

Makes about 30 meatballs.
