Grass Fed Beef Sausage Meatballs

These meatballs are farm-tested and delicious! Our butcher has some great sausage recipes that we experimented with during our early fall butcher date. Our favorite is the Sweet Italian Beef Sausage, and it lends itself well to many recipes. You can try it with my homemade Alfredo sauce below, find your own sauce or eat them plain. If you came to our 2014 Holiday Open House, you may have tried these samples.

For the Meatballs

What you need:

  • 1 pound HHF Sweet Italian Beef Sausage
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
  • 1 scant teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1 medium or large egg, wisked
  • a few shakes of grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons water, if needed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl
  • Grab a non-stick baking pan (I like the ones with ridges on the side)
  • Take small amount of olive oil and rub it across the pan
  • Shape beef sausage mixture into meatballs, about 1 inch in size
  • Broil the meatballs about 8 inches from the heat source for about 7 minutes in high. Turn and broil for about 7 minutes longer.
  • Add the meatballs to your favorite sauce, and simmer for 10 minutes or until done.

Alfredo Sauce (so much better than the jar stuff!)

What you need:

  • Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. flour into melted butter, whisking constantly. Cook, whisking constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute or until mixture is golden and lumpy
  • Gradually whisk in milk and half and half, and bring to a simmer. Cooke, whisking constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thickened.
  • Add shredded parmesan cheese, feta, salt, pepper, and paprika, whisking until smooth. Remove from heat and use immediately.
